    I think that the question needs to be restated as "tell whether a given
    *styled string* can rendered in a given font *by a given rendering
    engine*". Not all rendering engines use fonts in the same way (even for
    plain text). Not all rendering systems go about realizing styling in the
    same way (even for the same styling language).
