Disappearing PDF content

Recently I have had to use Acrobat to make a PDF newsletter more accessible. The document had been created in Microsoft Publisher and its reading order was especially bad. One problem I encountered is that sometimes, when moving a tag to its appropriate place in the reading order pane - for example, placing a heading above the pertinent paragraph - the corresponding text would become invisible in the document viewer. Has anyone encountered this and is there a way to avoid it?
