We used it back in the day under Windows 3.1 to render TrueType fonts into bitmaps for use in our commercial ink-jet printers. There are other calls in that same area that give you character metrics and other useful information for your application.
I thought about that, but it doesn't seem like it, because the padding is consistent (in terms of physical proportions) as you increase the size. There seems to be some internal box layout (similar to CSS margins/padding) but I can't control it.
