A pure-Lua text rendering module for Corona SDK which can handle basic HTML, fonts, font-styles, and even basic font metrics.

This module renders text close to a proper desktop publishing program like Adobe InDesign. That means I can position text correctly on screen for books, etc.

A pure-Lua text-rendering module for Corona SDK which can handle basic HTML, fonts, font-styles, and even basic font metrics. It handles left/center/right justification, fonts, bold/italic/underline.
It also creates hyperlinks which can call actions. I use those to open websites, show graphics on the page, etc.

By measuring the total font height and where the actual text is visible from top and bottom, you can get the percentage offset required to get perfect placement. Because it's different in the Corona Simulator, Android, and iOS, you need to do this at least 3 times.
