Issue raised by Adobe.

For some buttons, IPDDomNode::GetTextContent returns something different to the name. GetTextContent is supposed to account for alternate and actual text, but it seems that overriding a button's name is not considered alternate/actual text. Apparently, authors can override the name using the tooltip and this is what they (and Adobe) expect an AT user to see.

I guess it makes sense to do this for all controls for which the name is generally the content; i.e. the useNameAsContent flag in the backend.

In [d196b3f]:

In browse mode in Adobe Reader, the correct text is now rendered for buttons, etc. where the label has been overridden using a tooltip or other means.

In the backend, where useNameAsContent is true, IPDDomNode::GetName is now tried before IPDDomNode::GetTextContent.
