Bug #25068 will be adding complex text support in Chromium Linux using HarfBuzz. It would be nice if we can share the same codebase (with the exception of the Skia bits).

Not sure, it seems more natural for us to use Pango, which already uses HarfBuzz internally AFAIK.

Apparently the people with a clue about this think that using Harfbuzz directly makes more sense, so disregard that :) Some links Behdad pasted on IRC to read about the APIs we should be using to write a harfbuzz backend: - http://behdad.org/text/ - http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/harfbuzz/2009-August/000359.html

This patch seems to work, but Harfbuzz doesn't yet do any complex shaping so it's hard to know. :(
