Font substitution in OOo (was: Grepping fonts for a specific glyph)

Font replacement is not the same as font substitution. Font
replacement is the user deciding that font XYZ is hard to read, so he
would like the app to use font ABC instead. Font substitution is when
a font is not available, so the application quietly uses another font.
