For the rendering on Linux i know you have to use ICU or Pango together with freetype. Freetype just does the glyph rendering - nothing else.

All the painfull features in the TrueType Tables most be done seperatly.

Sorry Fionn, my expertise in in text handling and to a lesser extent the rest of plain-jane GDI. I like to play with 3D once in a while but that's pretty much it. For nitty gritty about perf and resource aspects of one method or another I'm sure other people on this forum are way more qualified.

But to answer your question, in my toy app I use a texture per string.
