>   * raster images (both foreground and background)
>   * author supplied fonts
>   * audio descriptions and text to speech
>   * ruby text annotations
>   * improved vertical line layout
>   * text emphasis, kerning, letter spacing, shadows, and variants

>   * stereoscopic presentation (for 3-D viewing)
