I am currently working on the font and text systems for the engine.

The font system will support both raster and vector fonts. They both use a generic interface so that a font can be used in the same way no matter what its data format is. Due to limitations with the rendering system, vector fonts won't be immediately available. However, once the rendering system has been upgraded, vector fonts will be possible.

The text system will have two classes; plain text and rich text. The rich text class will support word-wrap, margins, text color/size/style changes, the ability for a section of text to respond to mouse events, embedded images, and other features. When only simple text display is required, an instance of the plain text class is used.
