Problem description: 

After importing hebrew document from MS office (.docx) text direction and alignment becomes LTR instead of RTL.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open document with hebrew text

Current behavior:
Text is aligned to left and text direction is LTR

Expected behavior:
Open as RTL.

Additionaly, in windows part of the text is displayed as boxes, while in linux text is displayed correctly.

LO 3.5 on Fedora 17 opens document correctly.

Operating System: Windows 7
Version: release
Last worked in: 3.5 all versions

Text direction bug is already fixed. The fix will be available in 4.2. (see Bug 43093)

The font display issue consists of two bugs:
- LO missing support of MS Office 'Themes' (see Bug 64232)
- There is a bug in the fallback font display under Windows. (see Bug 62559)
