XLS to XLSX - font boldness and positioning is changed

When converting XLS to XLSX the font boldness and text margins/positioning is not preserved.

Using aspose-cells-20.4.jar

Using this XLS2XLSX code:
com.aspose.cells.LoadOptions loadOptions = new com.aspose.cells.LoadOptions(com.aspose.cells.FileFormatType.EXCEL_97_TO_2003);
com.aspose.cells.Workbook workbook = new com.aspose.cells.Workbook(inputPath, loadOptions);
workbook.save(outputPath, com.aspose.cells.FileFormatType.XLSX);

The XLS and XLSX files:
xls2xlsx.zip (423.0 KB)

Difference between the two files:
