Both gedit and OOo will attempt font substitution if the given font doesn't
have the glyphs, and we've patched OOo to use fontconfig like gtk does for this
process. So we need to make sure that gedit and OOo are both starting their
search and substitutions from the same starting position when seeing if this
has gone wrong in one of them.

So as in this attachment I've set gedit to use Luxi Sans 10 the same as oocalc.
Is the problem visible in this screenshot ?. 

(and the debugging variable "SAL_EMBEDDED_BITMAP_PRIORITY" is not set in the
environment), i.e. unset SAL_EMBEDDED_BITMAP_PRIORITY

These bugs are being closed since a large number of updates have been released
after the FC5 test1 and test2 releases. Kindly update your system by running yum
update as root user or try out the third and final test version of FC5 being
released in a short while and verify if the bugs are still present on the system
.Reopen or file new bug reports as appropriate after confirming the presence of
this issue. Thanks

RE: Comment #2
Apologies for the delay. Yes, the behaviour in the screenshot is very ideal.
Seems you have went ahead and make changes to oocalc. It is now working
perfectly in FC5Test3. Thanks.
