No, not so, I'm afraid - it's the Word imaging model. E.g. fonts
depend on the selected printer as Word offers the printer's built-in
fonts in addition to Windows'.

Try installing a generic/text-only printer, selecting it, and then
exploring Word's formatting options...

This is, arguably, correct behaviour. What 2007 does, or OO.o, I don't know.
