Publisher compatibility

Is there an issue with backward compatibility in MS Publisher? Everyone else in our office is using Office 2000, I’m using 2003. Today one of my users got a Publisher file that she couldn’t open at all, but which opened fine and dandy in Publisher 2003. I haven’t noticed any other Office programs that simply won’t open documents created in a later version of Office before this. Yeah, there’s some features and formatting that’s different in a Word 2003 or Excel 2003 file opened in 2000, but nothing that just refuses to open at all. The only other hint might be that I’m prompted to do a font substitution when I open it, does 2000 not do that and not open files without the correct fonts being available? Does anyone out there know more about Publisher than I do? (It wouldn’t take much, I admit!)
