Thank you, everyone, for your entertaining discussion of what is usually quite a boring topic.
— CGContextSelectFont with kCGEncodingMacRoman + CGContextShowTextAtPoint is useful only for the simplest text display in very narrow circumstances. You should not use it.
— CGContextSelectFont with kCGEncodingFontSpecific + CGContextShowTextAtPoint is useful only if you are an expert, which you are not. You should not use it.
— ATSUI is an excellent text layout engine, but it is deprecated. You should not use it.
— CoreText is an excellent text layout engine which handles all the vagaries of text layout, including proper display of the euro character and ligatures. You should use it.
