may be the problem is in your code, but it is also possibly
in PIL which clips caracters at the top and bottom line;
that's not the typographic names, but these are *font* values,
not characters ones.
There are fonts with caracters far higher than these
conventionnal lines (try Liorah.ttf or any swashed font for
I don't remember for sure but may be there is the same problem
