Khaled's comment (bug 107462 comment 3): Not displaying the English name if the font do not have a localized name for the current locale is an independent issue and should be reported separately.

I asked Khaled ( bug 107462 comment 4 )

"But i'm a bit confused why it should show a localized name at all, as when you open up the font name drop down, it always shows the english name in the left column and i would assume the user cant type the localized name of the font in the drop down to locate it."

and he replied ( bug 107462 comment 5 )

"Since you are on Linux, that is the only platform where we try to read all localized font names and set them internally as alternate names (so that specifying the font by its localized name works), but probably this code is too naïve and things got mixed up.".

Is step 1 necessary? I see the non-English names even when they are not installed.
