and it's not trivial. i think you have to use freetype directly and
paint the outlines coming out of it with your own "colour brush". i
once googled around alot, but could'nt find a free library, that was
able to render "nice" outlined fonts. some just do a simple edge
detection algorithm, but this really looks ugly.
best regards ...
