According to the limition HSSF cannot support rich text cells, after inserting 
the rich text cell and deleting it, the HSSF still throw 
exception "NegativeArraySizeException".

2. Add two font types in the one cell of Excel file to let the HSSF to throw 
the exception
3. Delete the rich text cell
4. Using HSSF to access the Excel file again

HSSF still throw the exception "NegativeArraySizeException"
Also, the exception "NegativeArraySizeException" is not suitable to
