Does not show Bold and Italic style for embolden and artificial oblique
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:37 EST
Description of problem:
We enable artificial oblique and embolden for fonts which do not have bold and
italic style fonts, but user couldn't choose those two styles when they select
an individual font.
Steps to Reproduce:
2. Edit -> Preference
3. Fonts & Color -> Editor font
4. Choose "Baekmuk Gulim"
In Style column, it shows "Regular" only.
In Style column, it should show "Regular; Italic; and Bold"

reassigning to pango so far.
There's an upstream bug about this, with a patch that I committed once but had
I'll probably look into it not before next weekend during the GNOME Boston summit.
This bug in the upstream bugzilla is:
And this bug in the upstream bugzilla has already been fixed.
So this bug can be closed.
