Jonathon (and Jonathan):Here is a pdf containing a better explanation of how
to HELP avoid unnecessary font substitutions in LibreOffice Writer and other
applications. The primary cause of this  to be using fonts that either don't
have or don't correctly report their coverage and other capabilities. This
is particularly annoying when intermingling multiple scripts/languages
within a single sentence, paragraph, or document. The pdf also contains an
updated bash shell script for helping to select fonts that are appropriate
for a given combination of scripts/languages, as well as identifying fonts
that should perhaps be retired to that proverbial foundry in the sky and
replaced with better ones.Frank Evaluating-fonts-for-multilingual-use.pdf
