Re: [tdf-discuss] LibreOffice should have own "LibreOfficeFont"

Personally I would like to see active discouragement of the use of
Times New Roman, Georgia, Verdana, Arial, Calibri, Cambia, etc. as
they are restricted to Microsoft product use only, resulting in
impossible verbatim compatibility.

My concern is this:

Several years ago I started using Garamond on almost everything - long before I knew is 
was MS.  I have many old documents that use it.  I have Garamond installed on Ubuntu for 
that reason.

I can easily use jGaramond and tell Writer at my end to subsitute Garamond with 

However, if I send a document to a Windows user they probably do not have jGaramond.  If 
I have selected jGaramond at my end, it is likely to be rendered as Times New Roman at 
the reciever.

An easy way to specify:
1- font to use at my end;
2- preferred replacement font, if (1) is not available would be good.

- kinda like the way I tell my phone to use Meteor when in Ireland, and if that is not 
available, to use O2.

If this is already possible, please reply politely to tell me to RTFM and I'll be quiet!
