Might be embedded bitmaps being handled different for one app vs the other. Or
perhaps glyph substitution. Can you give me the url of the wiki page seen above
so I can reproduce the problem for myself.

Or (maybe even better) a line of text which shows this problem when inputted
into writer, but not when inputted into gedit. When both apps are set to use the
same font.

The font face seems overly "heavy" in OOo e.g. 略 seems very poor in OOo in
Sazanami Gothic 12 point.

I think sazanami-after.png looks good. Thank you.
