    Anybody knows what can make abiword switch at startup from style Normal
    to style None?

    I've added code to the styles to get dynamically the nearest[*] font in
    the system to Times New Roman or Arial (for "Normal" and "Heading
    {1,2,3}"), but now when AbiWord starts it's using the "None" style.

    If nobody disagrees, I will commit tomorrow all my xft patch, and start
    fixing this little problem + some fixes to the insert dialog box.

    * Note: There has been a big amount of emails in the list about how to
    measure the similarities between fonts, suggestion ranging from fixed
    tables to PANOSE matching. By now, I've used the fontconfig matching
    mechanism, which mean basically a fixed table. I think that keith is
    working to get PANOSE matching.

    So in the future I can change the matching method to PANOSE, or PANOSE
    2, or just comparing [hv]stems, or whatever...
