Thanks for the input!
Yeah, I need to make some automated tests for some of that. The problem
is that the measurements will depend on the fonts available, the system
dpi, system-wide font hinting settings, etc., so it's a bit hard to make
any of those tests repeatable on someone else's system. Also it's hard
to tell things like if it really did draw the alignment, clipping,
character direction, etc. correctly without looking at it. Any ideas on
how to do any of that in a reliable sort of way for automatic testing
would be greatly appreciated.
