As I gather from http://www.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=37073
OO.o *does* display OpenType fonts, it just doesn't apply the advanced
Note that stacking diacritics, vertical layout, ligatures and all those
other OTF
features can't even be expressed in TTF and Type1. So I still say, go for
OTF and
enjoy the advanced features when the apps are ready. I'm pretty sure
pango-based apps and possibly OO.o will deliver within a year.
