Batik extends text attributes with kerning, word and character spacing. The
beauty of pure Java2D text is : you do not have to preprocess fonts files
and to deal with glyph metrics. If you want I will send you my font test
program. There will be a Java2D text rework in Java 1.5 to eliminate bugs
and improve some internals.

What is your idea of a typesetting API? Something like a FOP renderer
interface, storing a document as graphics objects in memory, a formatter?
