Description jjc 2005-04-24 15:59:19 UTC
If I create a document containing Thai text using the Thai edition of Word 97
and then load it into OOo, all the character formatting such as font, font size,
bold, italic is lost: all characters end up in 10pt Cordia.  Word 2003 can
correctly import the document.

The problem seems to be that OOo is treating all the character formatting
properties as applying to Western text not Thai text.

james_clark->mru: I think this should be 2.0.1 target milestone
Comment 3 michael.ruess 2005-04-28 15:18:15 UTC
Yes, it should... but you needn't reassign this for re-targeting.
Comment 4 andreas.martens 2005-08-18 12:31:22 UTC
Considering the effort, the priority, the risk and our resource planning I've to
retarget this issue to OOo Later.
Comment 5 jdros 2006-01-23 09:40:23 UTC
Same happens when opening Word97 documents that contain Greek characters. OOo is
treating all (Greek) characters as being Western, not Greek. Formating, font
size, etc. seems OK.

However, checking "Language" in Format->Character, seems Greek!

Please note that the issue 92341 is different but may due to the same code. It's
the case that if you use "Angsana New" as default Thai font in "MS Office 2003",
when import, all Thai text will be "Times New Roman" with the same size. So only
the typeface information is lost. Please also use the bugdoc in the issue as the
test case for QA.
