  * resolution:  => fixed


 (In [14025]) Work around a problem introduced with the new FreeSans.ttf
 added to svn
 recently that was causing the DVD menus created in MythArchive to have
 missing text elements.

 * Changes the way the script calculates the width and height of text so
   it will work consistently with all fonts regardless of how a font
   its metrics.

 * Change the way fonts are defined in theme files.
     - Font definitions now have a name and can be referred to by name in
       text elements.
     - The color can be defined in the font definition.
     - Add new 'shadow' and 'outline' font drawing effects.
     - Add new 'shadowsize' and 'shadowcolor' font attributes.

   See the changes in themes/MythCenter/theme.xml for an example of how the
   new font definitions should be used.

   The font definition changes are backwards compatible so old themes
   still work OK.

 * There's a number of changes that improve the image quality of the jpegs
   that are used to create the final DVD menus.

 TODO: - Convert all the existing themes to use the new font definitions.
       - Check the positioning of all text elements is still OK since these
         changes alter the positioning slightly.
       - Change some of the themes to use the new text styles where
