Description jjc 2006-01-24 06:34:48 UTC
Word 2003 sometimes creates .doc files containing CTL text such that when the .doc file is opened by OOo, the CTL font of the text is lost. One easy to reproduce way to see this is: 1. Create a new document in Word 2. Type some Thai characters 3. Save as XML 4. Close the document 5. Open the XML document again in Word 6. Observe that font of CTL text is Angsana New 7. Save as .doc 8. Close the document 9. Open the .doc in OpenOffice 10. In Format|Character, observe that font of Thai text is "Times New Roman" Note that if you simply save the document as .doc in Step 3, OpenOffice can read the file. Also note that the problem goes away if you explicitly set a different font in Step 2. I don't understand exactly what causes Word 2003 to produce these problematic files. It seems to be somewhat random. Several users have reported this problem.

MRU->FLR: The CTL font is applied vie Format.Character or Toolbar here. The style's font is Times New Roman. Writer seems to ignore the hard attribute and importd the style's font.

In creating the example, I did not use any hard formatting. The CTL font is the examples is the default font.
