Description aleksejs 2004-04-07 14:11:00 UTC
On Windows XP and Windows2000 (probably other versions as well) using if one
saves document as RTF, then diacritical marks (both uppercase and lowercase)
"sh" "š" "s-caron" and "zh" "ž" "z-caron" are not saved properly. Problem arose
on previous versions of OO as well, but example is from OO v1.1.1. build 8762.
Interestingly, if old type of Baltic fonts is used (for instance BaltTimes) then
characters with diacritical marks are saved properly, although not in specified
font (it seems that OO defaults to Arial), whereas if one chooses the correct
font (for instance Arial) then those two characters become mangled.
To reproduce this: Open blank OO document, type s-caron or z-caron, save as RTF,
close, open the saved document.
This bug was seen on three computers (2 with WinXP and 1 with Win2k). On Linux
there are no such problems.

additonal information :
windows 2k, 1.1.0, 1.1.1 - unable to reproduce
regional settings - latvian
tested with times new roman

also no significant differences known that could cause this behaviour

MRU->MMAHER: the RTF here seems to be a non-MS standard. when I re-save this RTF
with Word 2003, Writer imports it without problem.
