OOo can only use outline fonts, not bitmapped ones, and...

bash-3.1$ fc-list :lang=th

So we need outline thai fonts, but I don't see any in our distro. On the other
hand I see that Suse has...


which work perfectly fine with our OOo.

Cannot do much on this "additional language" in FC6 as the runway is limited
now. Defer this on future FC releases.

thaifonts-scalable was added to the distribution in Fedora 9.
