That is exactly what I intended you to see.

Now highlight the slab of text and change the font to Freesans. Save the 
new version of the document and then open it in both Libreoffice 3 and 
Libreoffice 4. You will see that the document appears differently in the 
two versions of Libreoffice when it should appear exactly the same.
