> I needed to output vertical Japanese text, but was stymied by several limitations:
> * No API to load a TTF as Identity-V encoding
> * No support for 'vert' glyph substitution
> * No support for vertical metrics ('vhea' and 'vmtx' tables are parsed but not used at
> I have attached a series of patches that implement the above features. Highlights:
> * The GSUB glyph substitution table is parsed (limitation: type 1 lookups only; this
is sufficient for many features including 'vert'/'vrt2' vertical glyph substitution)
> * Cmap lookup makes use of GSUB when features are enabled on a TTF
> * 'vhea' and 'vmtx' metrics are applied to PDCIDFont when appropriate, and are embedded/subsetted
correctly through the DW2/W2 CIDFont dictionary
> * An API has been added for loading a TTF as a vertical font, setting Identity-V encoding
and enabling 'vert'/'vrt2' substitution
> Each patch could approximately be split out into a separate ticket, if desired.
> Also attached is some sample code that exercises these patches and illustrates the effect
of vertical glyph positioning. The sample output PDF is also attached.
