This is a prime candidate for being fixed in the first AOO release. With the
advent of recent desktops, there have been an overwhelming number of dark
themes created and some are the default in distributions. The current rendering
of 'Black' text as a preview font is unreadable. This is not affected by the:

Accessibility > Automatically detect high contrast theme setting.

(although you must disable this feature if using a dark theme to change the
icon theme [OO defaults to high-contrast with dark themes making the theme
impossible to change])

This is one of the first things a user of a dark theme sees when they look at
the font preview. If you use a dark theme -- it is unreadable. (see attachment
