this where non programmers can really give a hand in the scribus development!

test it throughly, tells us about what you have found and how it could be improved...

or find out the way it is done correctly and write a blog article / a wiki page or simply an email post about how to do it right :-)

(personally, i don't work with mac and many fonts, so i can't really help here...)
