It's a nice idea, but won't that suffer the same problem? ie. Bod will still need to contrast that outline with the image background otherwise it might still be black-on-black or whatever.

    It shouldn't, as at least one of the outline or the fill colour should be visible.

    map{substr$_->[0],$_->[1]||0,1}[\*||{},3],[[]],[ref qr-1,-,-1],[{}],[sub{}^*ARGV,3]
      one of the outline or the fill colour should be visible

      I could be wrong but I don't think outline fonts have two different colours. They have a solid outside and a transparent inner.

    I think it will hippo but I am currently looking for a suitable TTF file to test it out...

    Update...
    As expected, an outline font doesn't help as the middle bit is transparent.

    This still looks OK but
    This doesn't...

    The text overflows the images because the font is much wider than the one I originally used.
