Core Text LOL

Sometimes you just have to laugh.

I let XCode 7 install. And now I get the choice of the 10.11 SDK or the 10.11 SDK. Apple have finally removed the ATSUI API I was using to draw text in my Mac ports, causing compilation errors. So time to pull out the partially complete CoreText implementation and get that working.

Not quite there yet ;)

I have since yesterday got most of it working. Bold, underlines, colours, truncation to a given width, making the text the right way up and wrapping of text.

However all the fonts are looking bigger than before. Not sure what that's about. I think getting the system font info might be off or something.
