If all of this is true, then how do we succeed to display partial
lines with the existing ``pixel-challenged'' display engine?  What am
I missing?

Partial lines are only displayed when one or more lines isn't the size of the
canonical font size, like the info dir page for example.  But the window as a
whole is still a multiple of the canonical font size.

That's true, but it doesn't answer my question.  My question was how
do we manage to display such windows when that happens.  Martin seemed
to be saying that we cannot possibly do that, but in fact we do.

I imagine the display engine notice that there are leftover pixels and renders another line. Clipping takes care of the rest. This is the easy part, I guess that is why it has been done.
