More to come when I get a chance in the 1.3.1cvs time period. These will also
appear in the Story Editor's menu too when I rewrite the SE menu system.

The problem is we rely on the glyph existing in the font used by the GUI,
which is usually different to the one used in the text frame. They are
disabled if the font in the frame doesnt have them. Would be possible to
detect the ones from the GUI font, however Scribus may not even know about
that font... hmm.
