What is happening here and how can I fix it?

I've created a logo with a custom "C" character and turned the entire logo into a single compound path.

It looks like this:


Trouble is, when I apply a graphic style to the compound path, the C gets all goofy on me.

It looks like this:


It doesn't seem to matter what graphic style I apply. I've tried several and get the same result each time. I've isolated the C and made sure there were no stray points. I've run a simplify on it. Still get this goofy result.

Can anyone explain to me what's going on here and how I can fix it?

Here's what the path looks like:

Hey Tim - I'm almost certain that the path in the C is cut, or is otherwise multiple paths.
Maybe try resetting the path and fill of the compound object, than try Pathfinder / Unite. This could clean the C. Than retry the graphic style.
If that doesn't work, test all of the problem points in the C with the Direct Select to. You'd be looking for broken paths, by moving the points. If you do find a broken path you would use the Join command.

Worst case scenario, upload the file and someone will fix it.

Just some initial thoughts.

Vince
