Description windl 2008-12-15 15:50:39 UTC
This is a bit of an esoteric bug: I changed the default fonts for a document,
and I exported it as PDF/A. Viewing the list of fonts, I always found a font
that I did not use (AlbanyAMT). With the help of Adobe Acrobat I could locate
where the specific font is used: It's used for hyphens! See attachment.
So I guess it's a bug that a different font is used for hyphens than for the
rest of the document.

@hdu: does hyphenation use a specific font?
Comment 6 2009-03-05 08:16:30 UTC
Writer emitted an U+00AD ("soft hyphen") for the hyphen in the PDF and the original font selected did not 
support that code point. Albany comes to the rescue and provides it.
@od: why are you guys emitting a U+00AD ("soft hyphen") when you want a U+002D ("hyphen-minus")?
