That depends: if the application uses its own code for OpenType support,
then Microsoft's is irrelevant. For example, Adobe's applications use their
own library for font support.

But if it uses the same Microsoft APIs, then yes, it would be affected. I
expect Serif PagePlus is in this camp; being a Windows-only application
they would have little motivation to roll their own code for this purpose.
