That will just give style-based font use. For direct formatting, replace

When I try this on a new .odt file that contains just a single word 
using the Liberation Serif font, the output for both styles.xml and 
content.xml lists Liberation Sans, Mangal1, Mangal, Microsoft YaHei 
and SimSun in addition to the Liberation Serif that is actually used.

Yes. Sorry. I should have said "font definitions" rather than "font use". I
generally prefer the font super-set (based on definitions) to check/prevent

That looks a lot like a Unix/Linux line command ;) so I will give it a go
when I'm on my Linux box. Nevertheless it looks much more efficient than
having to rename the odp to zip, extracting the xml files and searching
for fonts! Thanks!

The problem with styles.xml is that it is listing ALL the fonts in the
default styles regardless of the fact that you are probably using  a small
fraction of them. Many (most?) users only use the Default style and all
else is direct formatting...

What I'm trying to figure out is which fonts are _effectively_ used...

Yes, that is a GNU/Linux command. As you indicate though it will only give
the super-set of fonts (according to definition) rather than in-text use.
For a presentation determining this is more complex, although I am sure some
combination of GNU tools would manage a rudimentary result. Parsing XML via
anything other than XML tools is inelegant.
Best wishes, Owen.
