    And Windows2000. However some ways of using the Text APIs will meant that
    few of the benefits of UniScribe are gained. In particular an application
    may use the API a character at a time (for fine control of placement) and
    base and combining characters will then be separated unless particular care
    is taken to avoid this.

    Hence, while it is true that an application using TextOut is indirectly
    using UniScribe, it does not follow that they are doing so in a manner
    appropriate for solving the problem described.
