The strange thing is that LO 4.0.5 on the same system shows both Calibri and Calibri Light in the 
drop down. shows only Calibri so something changed in Grrrr.

Both use a substitute font for Calibri Light Bold/Bold Italic. That is
because only Calibri Light and Calibri Light Italic are in the fonts
that I copied over from Win7. Calibri Bold and Bold Italic
(calibriz.ttf) are available, so those fonts aren't substituted.

You can verify by Format|Character and then selecting Calibre
Light|Bold/Bold Light and notice the notification: "This font style will
be simulated or the closest matching style will be used.". If you select
only Claibri Light|Light/Light Italic the message will change to: "The
same font will be used on both your printer and your screen".

Correct. I have done all that. The issue with LO is that it  
cannot differentiate between the font sub-families, I guess you would  
call them, so it thinks Calibri and Calibri Light are the same family.  
They are in a sense, but not in another sense and LO 4.0.5 can tell  
the difference and cannot. AOO can tell the difference also  
even better than LO 4.0.5 in that it separates out Calibri, Calibri  
Light and Calibri Light Italic as separate fonts in the drop down list  
so I can choose which ever one I want. In I can make the  
Calibri Light work using the Format/Character menus, but cannot any  
way get Calibri Light Bold to work as it isn't listed anywhere.  
Somehow LO has changed how the fonts are differentiated and it really  
messes up this font access.

Interesting... maybe a MAC difference? Both my Windows (WinXP and Win7)
and Linux (Ubuntu and Fedora) versions of AOOo and LO only show Calibri
and Calibri Light in the dropdown. Calibri Light Italic (it is installed
on my Windows system) isn't listed in the dropdowns. Ditto for other
Windows applications: MSWord, Works, Wordpad.
