This QuarkXPress processing message and the related family of internal error messages is generated if the format of the p-code sent to QuarkXPress is not of the expected format.


Possible Reason 1


These messages are usually caused by the use of one of the 3 reserved characters {}| inside a holiday name, one-time-date-name, saint name, slogan, as one of the 4 Moon phases symbols, or in MonthHeaders.


The usual solution is to replace the direct use of any of these reserved characters {}| by its equivalent ASCII code.


For example you could change any occurrence of the pipe sign | in a holiday name by the code &#124.


Possible Reason 2


Another possible cause for this family of messages, is having the text that replaces a token being longer than 64K (QuarkXPress 2015 or before) or 128K (QuarkXPress 2016 or later).
