I've got a problem connected to this now:
written an odt, printed, I got instead of some glyphs just empty "boxes".
Exported a pdf - shows all characters as desired (and as OO shows). 
Printed to a file - in the ps there are the boxes.

So it really should be *indicated* in OO, if there are missing glyphs on a system!!!

(And it should be *comprehensible*, which font is used instead of which one at
every place and for every single character.)

(And it should be *configurable*, how OO behaves.)
