Having some reference images in Internet would be nice, I would like to
see how this shows up in BibleTime and how it should be. This goes for
other languages/scripts, too. Generally speaking there is nothing which
an ordinary developer can do about these problems but at least it would
be good to know the situation.

http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/TextLayout has a very short introduction
for those who wonder the differencies in the output but I am yet to find
a good introduction to the techniques involved - fonts, font engines,
layout engines etc.
