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.
