I'm confused:

^^^ you are setting the Font to the same thing it used to have here no
(since you remove the code that used to potentially alter it)?

     sal_uInt16                   nCurPos     = GetPagePos( mnCurPageId );

Why the last SetFont() ? you are not messing with the font anymore
right ? so it has not changed... no need to restore it, no?
