           Summary: GDI text rendering should preserve line length
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 525+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Text
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: contact at nickshanks.com

The metrics of ClearType-rendered text are different to those calculated by
CoreGraphics, due to inaccuracies introduced when ClearType moves glyphs around
so they fit better on the pixel grid. In order to maintain line length and
avoid different paragraph flow from what would result with CG or at higher DPI,
additional integer pixel whitespace may have to be introduced/eliminated
between words. This would also apply if WPF were to be used at some date
instead of GDI.
