Bug Description

1) Ubuntu release : 12.04 LTS

2) libreoffice package version : 3.5.2-2ubuntu1
localization fr french français (france)
affects Writer, Calc, Impress ...

3) What should happen :

When the autocorrection option "format suffix for ordinal numbers" is checked, typing
1er 2nd 2ème 3ème ... 21ème ... should put the string following the number in exponent (1^er ...)
and with latin numbers (used for centuries) : Ier IIe IIIe ... XXIe ...

4) What happens :

(one user reported that with the libreoffice version downloaded from the libreoffice website, 1er was OK, but it was the only one.)

I do not think this bug is limited to the French localization, it also appears to affect English users. See the LibreOffice Bug 38242:

This relates to this bug:
Apart from that was for the English version. It is therefore a duplicate

Well, it's not completely a duplicate since there are specificity for (french) localisation.

At the moment (LibreOffice 4.3.4 from ppa Ubuntu 14.04) some things work :
1er, 2e, 3e... 123e...

and some don't :
(numbers) 1ère, 2nd, 2nde, 2ème, 3ème... (centuries) Ie, IIe, IIIe... XXe...
