           Summary: prefer BaseFont over FontName

In the document at http://code.google.com/p/sumatrapdf/issues/detail?id=1014 ,
a Font's BaseFont differs from its FontDescriptor's FontName, even though the
PDF Spec says they should be identical. While MuPDF currently prefers FontName
over BaseFont, Adobe Reader seems to do the opposite.

Note: I do have one document (I may not share) where BaseFont is
"Arial,Bold+000041" and FontName is "Arial,Bold" and which misrenders with the
above change unless either an exception  is made or the trailing "+<digits>" is
