Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 119219] Saved RTF has issue in encoding Latin1 characters

Hi orcmid,

1. When Open Office is used, how are the *desired* Asian characters entered by
operators?  Do you have keyboards for this? -  
We are using font driver software which uses Low Level Keyboard hooks. This
software is widely used. When we type a character say 'k', the software
captures the keystroke and modifies the characters to 'šb' and send them to
target application that is rendering the keystroke/text.

2. Do you select a particular font that causes the tunneled Asian characters to
appear in displays and when printing? - Yes

3. Finally, are you using a localized version of Open Office that supports that
Asian language in your user interface? - No, we use default version with
English interface.

4. Is there any plan for working out of this bind and beginning to use Unicode
correctly? - I am not sure about it.

5. One interesting point I found that if we replace fcharset128 to fcharset0 in
font table of RTF file using notepad. i.e. 
Change line from 
{\f4\fnil\fprq2\fcharset128 APS-DV-Stardust;}
{\f4\fnil\fprq2\fcharset0 APS-DV-Stardust;}
everything works well in target application i.e. Adobe Pagemaker7.

Now question is how does fcharset128/fcharset0 is detected for a font ? (Kindly
note other applications like wordpad, TextMaker detects same font
APS-DV-STARDUST as fcharset0)
