Well, I'm not sure whether I understand it well, but it seems to me, that
th HZ algorithm just stertches _all_ glyphs in the same ratio (on the same
line of course). What I was thinking of is a) having certain characters
various glyphs (with varying size) or b) beeing able to specify glyphs,
that may be stretched (e.g. old hebrew has 5 letters, that may be
strechted even with ratio 1:4 or similar :) 

Petr Tomasek,
