    Question Can you tell me how this was built?

    I'm trying to do text manipulation on a webpage with different fonts but the best I can do is with Javascript & PHP and I get a pixelated text image. It works ok, and I can even get an outline, but its not great. I stumbled onto this:
    http://b.customink.com/lab/ where I can get clear text and add an outline, do an arc, change size, etc. It's not flash (I don't think) so what is it? How would I begin to learn how to build something like this?
    Thanks

    your right i dont see any flash, looks like a combo between php, css and maybe some other server side language thrown in.

    Did they use something like Java? Is there a language that handles text fonts well? I guess I don't know much outside of Javascript & PHP.
