           Summary: FORMATTING, FILEOPEN: Default bullet point not showing
                    correctly (.lwp import)
           Product: LibreOffice
           Version: LibO 3.3.0 release
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW

.lwp '97 file with a bullet point in the default style

The default bullet point style is replaced by a square box when a .lwp document
is opened in Writer.

I believe the default bullet point style in Word Pro '97 is from the Wingdings
font, specifically 'circle4' which has ANSI character code number 0x49 in hex,
which is 159 in decimal. 

Most of the other built-in bullet point styles in Word Pro also uses Wingdings
characters, but these are rendering OK in Writer.

I believe something's going wrong during the .lwp import process. Saving the
.lwp as a .odt in Writer and then examining the styles.xml the XML relating to
the default bullets shows it as:

<text:list-level-style-bullet text:level="10" text:bullet-char="Ÿ">

That is with seemingly no character selected. Compare with a bullet point in a
different style that does work OK in Writer:

<text:list-level-style-bullet text:level="1" text:bullet-char="§">

Where § has the same character code number as the desired symbol in Wingdings.

I've attached an .lwp document as an example of the broken bullet point.
