   Why?  What does it matter how the character's glyph is generated, if
   in the end you see the same shape?

I'm just not a fan of using images files for text.  They're typically
slow to render, and they don't typically look very good.  We have an
extended character set available that has the potential to make
editing math (etc.) seemlessly integrated with editing normal text,
and moreover this can be done with no outside dependencies.
