There are/were a pile of docs in the abiword source (which I don't have
around) which gave a decent description of the fonts problems and what
you can do. They were in the .abw format, of course. Dig down the
documents tree for an abw directory.

Reading M$word docs with abiword has always been a sport or pastime not
to be taken too seriously. Maybe it has improved.
