Hello, Everyone :)
This weekend I had to use Gnome for a day or two, and I was struck by how much 
better OpenOffice 1.9m62 looked in Gnome than it does in KDE.  Before I get 
into this, I need to say that this might not have anything to do with the 
problem you are having.  I found the configuration setting that fixed my 
problem at the following location: "Tools | Options | OpenOffice.org | View"  
On that window was this item: "Use system font for user interface"  I 
unchecked that box, clicked OK and OpenOffice.org 1.9m62 now looks just as 
good in KDE as it does in GNOME.

I do apologize if this had nothing to do with your problem.
