You may want to use a third-party program to print/save PDF files 
(GostScript maybe). On Mac OS X 10.5.5, if I use the built-in Apple's 
PDF writer in the dialog box for Print or Print Selection, the resulting 
PDF file displays correctly the custom markers. (I have sent you such a 
PDF file by email.)
