The following document might be better.

  Caching

  Uniscribe saves Unicode-to-glyph (cmap) mappings, glyph widths, and
  OpenType script shaping tables. A handle to the tables for a
  particular font of a particular size is called a "script
  cache". Many Uniscribe functions call for both an device context
  handle parameter and a SCRIPT_CACHE parameter. These functions look
  first for information through the script cache, using the device
  context only when required tables are not already cached.
  (snip)

  For ScriptShape and ScriptPlace, it is valid for the application to
  pass a null device context. Most often the call will succeed, as
  required tables are already cached. If the shaping or placement
  requires access to a device context, ScriptShape or ScriptPlace
  returns immediately with the E_PENDING error code. Then the
  application must select the font in the device context. For most
  applications, this helps performance by avoiding repeated
  preparation of a device context handle with calls to SelectObject.
