Applying change of stylesheet doesn't work

I use ubuntu 13.10 and Libre Office 3.5.7.2 both in english.

I have a word-document (.docx) which I want to edit in Libre Office Writer. The document comes with some stylesheets: I have "default" text with some quotes in between which are marked as "quotation". When I open the document in LO and save it to odt, the quotations are still marked as "quotations", the default text is still marked as "default", allright.

Now I want to change the font of the document to garamond. So I downloaded a garamond font and installed it, and I'm able to use it in LO. When I change the font of the "default" stylesheet everything works as expected. But when I want to change the style sheet of "quotation" it doesn't work for each instance of "quotation" - some, but not every quotation is in Garamond, some stay the original font. Strangely the displayed font name (in thre dropdown menu between font size and the style) is "Garamond-Normal" (as defined in the style sheet of "quotation") but the text is still formatted in the original font. Using "Clear Direct Formatting" shows no result. When I change the stylesheet-font to a different font (e.g. "Bitstream Charter"), the stylesheet works propperly and applies the change to every instance of "quotation". I have no idea how to solve this. Can you please help me?
