However, LO has one wonderful advantage. The free font, Linux
Libertine G, has many expert effects, and LO can access them all.
It's an excellent typeface, and so far, the latest LO stable version,
4.0.5, seems to work very well with it. (Despite its "Linux" name,
the font works just as well in Windows.) (Libertine has an equally excellent
  companion sans-serif font, Linux Bolinium G)

Using the advanced features requires adding extensions to the font
name, such as "Linux Libertine G:onum=1" to use old style numbers.
Various extensions are separated by the ampersand (&). It can be a
little cumbersome at first, but there is an excellent guide at:

The Typography Toolbar extension makes its use easier.

This looks very useful, but I note that it hasn't been updated since
2010 and OOo (LO?) 3.4. Is it known to function with LO 4.1?

I seem to have been misunderstood. My query referred to the Typography Toolbar extension and a little searching found the current version for LO 4.x.

Sorry for the noise.

Sorry for the confusion. The Typography Toolbar itself is simply a graphic way of accessing the expert features of Linux Libertine G. I rarely use it as I control everything through styles and simply type in the features I want in the font name box.
