I got them, thanks.

They are exactly the same as my PDF - the text appears fine but if I 
copy and paste it then it looks like this: "This his the offichial 

Cheers, Jonathan

I just sent you two files; an AOO odt, and an AOO generated PDF.

It is a font issue. I suspect that the non-problem with AOO that VA is
seeing is because AOO does not natively pick up the LO TTF Linux
Libertine G. It didn't even pick it up in ~/.fonts. Instead it will pick
up a Type 1 Linux Libertine O font. I figured this out by looking at the
PDF File|Properties|Font.

I ended up specifically installing the G fonts in AOO 3.5.0; _that_
allowed me to use G TTF instead of O Type 1. Now, when using the G TTF
font I experience the exact same issue as on LO. Moving the cursor from
the 'T' to the 'h' in 'This' causes the cursor to skip directly to 'i'.

Opening the TTF Linux Libertine G font in Fontforge generates these

The following table(s) in the font have been ignored by FontForge
  Ignoring 'Feat' SIL Graphite layout feature table
  Ignoring 'Glat' Graphite glyph attribute table
  Ignoring 'Gloc' Graphite glyph location in Glat table
  Ignoring 'Silf' SIL Graphite rule table
  Ignoring 'Sill' (unspecified) SIL Graphite table
The glyph named Tcommaaccent is mapped to U+021A.
  But its name indicates it should be mapped to U+0162.
The glyph named tcommaaccent is mapped to U+021B.
  But its name indicates it should be mapped to U+0163.

I don't know enough about fonts to comment otherwise.

So I keep on reading. But apparently not in the Debian or Ubuntu

Perhaps I'm missing the 'graphite' bits? When I follow the instructions
in<>   everything matches.

Are you able to post the PDF that you produce? I'd like to take a look
at it with some PDF editing tools?

Sent to you directly. Both the 3.5 and 3.6 versions.
