after reading : http://wiki.services.openoffice.org/wiki/Font-FAQ
to figure out where the issue lyes, this is what i think is happening...
 
when using a non-hebrew font (that has no hebrew glyphs) the wordart
font-substitution engine does not change to some pre-defined hebrew supported
font so it could display the glyphs like Writer's normal text engine does.

using the "Font Replacement Table" with "my defined font substitutions" it works
fine :-) BUT... i can not guess all the fonts out there ;-)

here are two samples;

using font "Andale Mono", some bizarre glyphs are located in the font table
position where hebrew glyphs should be and this is the result:

using font "Liberation Sans", no hebrew font table at all. so no glyphs are
displayed :

open type and true type correct hebrew fonts work fine :-)

i saw old issue reports that i'm not sure if the were supposed to deal with this
same issue:

much. Thanks in advance!

MRU->HDU: could you please have a look? When I open the attached document on my
windows system, Hebrew glyphs in all objects look fine. When opening on my SUSE
10.2 system, both objects do not show correctly. Maybe even do not have a
matching substitution font available...
Comment 5 nadavkav 2008-03-07 13:15:58 UTC
my guess is that "Word Art" engine is not using font-config to get font
substitutions as does OO's "normal text" engine.

kaplan -> hdu : 

I can confirm the problem with Debian GNU/Linux and oo.org 2.4.0. I get the same
result as described in the PDF.

Please change status to NEW.
