In Scribus, as far as I know, for each object you can choose to overprint
So it's fully possible to overprint small text even it has been converted
As for the fill rules, isn't that a property of the RIP? Do all RIPs behave
On the other hand, as far as I understand outlines in Scribus are stored as
a "custom font" (a type 3 font if I recall correct). This should mean that
the RIP will handle it as text, right?
