The character’s current text position considers the effects of any inter-character adjustments because of kerning, letter-spacing, and word-spacing and adjustments because of the x, y, dx, and dy attributes. If multiple consecutive characters are rendered inseparably (for example, as a single glyph or a sequence of glyphs), each of the inseparable characters returns the start position for the first glyph.
