Description of problem:
I've got several fonts from Adobe's Font Folio OpenType Edition
(*.otf).  They are OpenType fonts with PostScript outlines (as opposed
to TrueType outlines), and OpenOffice doesn't show them on the font
list. Fontconfig (GNOME font selector, etc) recognizes and shows them

Very good summary of such fonts is at http://www.adobe.com/type/opentype/

I wasn't able to find any free *.otf fonts on Adobe's site, though.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Drop some *.otf fonts to ~/.fonts.

Actual Results:  Fontconfig recognizes them and shows them (in GTK
font selector), but, even after restarting OO.o, they doesn't show up
in OO.o's font selector.

Expected Results:  OO.o should recognize such fonts.

Please see http://www.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=16032

OOo doesn't yet support *.otf fonts (I'm fairly certain), support for
them would be provided by upstream and filter back to Fedora.
