I'd rather not use MSLU because not everyone has it installed and it adds an
unncessary dependancy. I'd be happy converting Unicode strings to the
current codepage and using GetCharacterPlacementA as a stop-gap measure and
then add an implementation along the lines of MSKB 241020 at a later stage.
I want to make some kind of release of 3.3.3 in the near future and the use
of GetGlyphIndices is a show-stopper since it prevents compatibility with
Win 9x. I'll see if I can load up a copy of Windows 95 on Virtual PC at
lunch and get Qt/Win32 working on there.
