That's weird. I am using seamonkey-2.10.1 and do not have the problem.
I suspect that it is a LANG problem, but I don't use any LANG setting.
Take a look at the html code. I have <code
class="filename">Makefile</code>s in two places.
The css could be an issue because 'code' asks for 'font-family: monospace;'

I am running cairo-1.12.2, fontconfig-2.9.0, libreoffice-core-188.8.131.52.

When I run writer from the command line, it comes up and when I exit,
there is no output to terminal so that's normal. I do have the multiple
<family> entries in the fc_local.conf file, but that seems to be ignored
with the older fontconfig.
