Error description

    character in their name in DOORS 9.5 and 9.5.0.1.
    
    Steps to reproduce:
    =============
    1.? Create a New Style in MS Word by selecting required Font,
    size, Bold, spacing etc. Make sure that it contains a non
    English character in its name. (Example: a Umlaut character in
    the name of the new style)
    
    2.? Save this new Style to MS Word template.
    
    3.? Choose any Module in DOORS and Click on Export ? Microsoft
    Office ? Word ? Advanced tab ? enable 'Allow style mapping' and
    click on Export.
    
    4.? The 'Export to Word style mapping - DOORS' window is
    displayed.
    
    5.? Select Level 1 Object Heading -? and select the newly
    created non English named Style. Click Close.
    
    The Module is exported to MS Word. However, you would observe

    exported with the style that had been selected. You would also
    observe that the name of the style appears garbled in MS Word.
