I think he did indeed mean Uniscribe.dll -- the Windows-native OpenType
Layout engine, not the rasterizer. I'm not aware of any method of
plugging in the MS TrueType or ClearType rasterizer -- as the font
rasterization is not just a DLL with an API (Uniscribe is). The font
rendering code is a set of code portions (from Microsoft and Adobe),
built into GDI and DirectWrite directly.



May success attend your efforts,
