sample

Steps:
1) Open attached doc
2) Open style drop down menu
3) Notice that 'Webding Test' style name is rendered in the Webdings font and is unreadable in the drop down

This goes back to 4.0 when style name previews were introduced and also affects the style name previews in the sidebar introduced in 5.0.

Still in 6.0+. But no explanation why is this wrong behavior and a bug? 
Or: what's the requested expected result?

The idea is that the normal helpfulness of the preview is sabotaged by the symbols-only font. The preview should be deactivated in case the style has a symbol font.
