> I think the problem here, Mehul, is that odt export works with styles, not
fonts.  So to do what you want, the exporter would need to be able to tweak
the styles manually(so, I guess, first run some kind of xml transform on the
stylesheet, then apply the stylesheet itself).  If there are hidden
inconsistencies in the original stylesheet, you may end up with
difficult-to-diagnose breakage. I'd definitely suggest just modifying hte
stylesheet and saving it somewhere safe.
