Issues with MS Word templates and rtf/word compile

When I open a compiled document in MS Word I find that the text itself is set using the font selected for the compile. But when I select the paragraph mark in the file, it tells me Courier is used. This leads to issues with numbering, since it appears as if the number picks up the font used from the paragraph mark rather than from the text itself.

I experimented with the rtf file and changed the font declarations:

{\fonttbl{\f0\fnil\fprq2 Courier New;}{\f1\froman\fprq2 Times New Roman;}}


{\fonttbl{\f0\froman\fprq2 Times New Roman}{\f1\froman\fprq2 Times New Roman;}}

and now I can apply the numbered style of my Word template correctly.

I’m not sure if this is a bug or a feature… Should this be different/fixed in future versions?
