Hi again,

I just came up with another question: How are overlapping glyphs handled?

Let's say I have a red glyph and a blue glyph and I draw them in such a
way that they overlap. Let's say this additionally overlaps with a
non-colored glyph in the same position and I use a green source with 50%
alpha (cairo_set_source_rgba(cr, 0, 1, 0, 0.5)).

What's the visible result?


Here is what my implementation does: It renders the color glyphs, in order, followed by the non-color glyphs.

In practice, I don't think the case of mixed color and non-color glyphs in the same call will be all that common.
Most apps will explicitly set a color font just for the emoji and they won't render regular text with an emoji font,
with the result that runs of color glyphs and non-color glyphs will typically be in separate calls.
