Steps to reproduce:

I tried to choose a different font for the Latin script.


Actual results:

The font selection dialog offers to define fonts for several Latin-based languages: Baltic, Central European and Western European, but not Latin.


Expected results:

There should have been only one entry - "Latin". The separation was useful back in the days when Unicode and complete fonts were rare. Nowadays common Latin fonts support all varieties of the Latin script and the separation of Latin into Baltic, Central European and Western European is not needed anymore.
