Amongst all the 'fun' of fixing bugs in things like ServerDirectory it's so easy to forget how mind-crogglingly cool some of the things we can do are. Looking at the code of TextOnCurve I'd say that the dependence upon using Warpblt would require using bitmap characters, though it *should* be practical to use a TTFont to render a suitable font glyph. Not quite what you were asking for but maybe close enough?
