Line height depending on characters in that line

Moreover, with register-true page layout, the result is terrible (empty
lines between the lines). Maybe modification of the font file is not
possible, because the formula editor depends from OpenSymbol. A proper
solution would be to add relative size support (like in the Heading styles)
to the character size of the default character style Bullets, and set it to

By the way, there are other problems with these no-name list styles, eg.
their missing localizations. It would be fine to change or add an option to
use named numbering/list styles with Numbering/List icons and automatic
list replacement instead of these awful no-name styles.
