Wondering if it's possible to make a set of SVG linework caps and then embed those?
There should be then no leading increase for descenders as is the problem with using fonts.

Linework should be indistinguishable from a real font, unlike a bitmap.

What happens when the font is zoomed?

I have used small images of Chinese characters, for instance, in text:


<p>The character <i>jing,</i> <img alt="jing" class="textsize" src="../Images/jing-48b.jpg"/></p>

.textsize { height: 1em; }


The character scales with the body text. Obviously use a multiple for a drop cap.

May I ask where you're testing that?

In ePub2 looks OK in Sigil and Calibre. Works when exported to AZW3. Attached Kindle PW3 screens at min and max fontsize. And the character image itself.

Don't know if it works in KF7.
