Default GFX-windows: issues with italic text with Arial and Tahoma

When I run the following code, it displays ABCDEF in various styles.
And when the text is displayed in italics, it has a significant offset and shows up lower than the rest.

This looks wrong somehow...



Code:
gfx.init("name")

gfx.setfont(1, "Arial", 20, 0)
gfx.drawstr("ABCDEF")

gfx.setfont(1, "Arial", 20, 16896)
gfx.drawstr("ABCDEF")

gfx.setfont(1, "Arial", 20, 0)
gfx.drawstr("ABCDEF")

gfx.setfont(1, "Arial", 20, 18688)
gfx.drawstr("ABCDEF")

gfx.setfont(1, "Arial", 20, 0)
gfx.drawstr("ABCDEF")
It seems to be only with Arial and only with italic, from what I see.

Tested on Windows 7, Reaper 6.44x64

And another issue I found, this time with italic in Tahoma:

Some letters are "cut off", as if they are outside of a boundary box, as the letters "edler" in this example:



Code:
gfx.init("name", 1800, 200)

gfx.setfont(1, "Tahoma", 40, 0)
gfx.drawstr("Original Text")

gfx.setfont(1, "Tahoma", 40, 16896)
gfx.drawstr("Fat Text")

gfx.setfont(1, "Tahoma", 40, 0)
gfx.drawstr("wi")

gfx.setfont(1, "Tahoma", 40, 18688)
gfx.drawstr("edler")

gfx.setfont(1, "Tahoma", 40, 0)
gfx.drawstr("weniger")

Arial problem confirmed here; font sizes 19 and 21 italics are off too



Tahoma cut-offs confirmed too.

The right edges of italics getting cut a bit we can fix. The Y offset on Arial seems to be specific to Arial... Maybe it has a different ascender metric. Hard to correct that without potentially breaking a lot.

Hmm, so I need to manually fix it by adding an offset in these cases... :/

Is this the same case with Tahoma?

I need to. For UI consistency reasons.
