    Remarks

    Windows NT/2000/XP: When the graphics mode is set to GM_ADVANCED, you can specify the escapement angle of the string independently of the orientation angle of the string's characters.

    When the graphics mode is set to GM_COMPATIBLE, Escapement specifies both the escapement and orientation. You should set Escapement and Orientation to the same value.

    Windows 95/98/Me: The Escapement member specifies both the escapement and orientation. You should set Escapement and Orientation to the same value.
