PHP folks: what's the best to write arbitrary length text over an image, such that it fits in a specific (rectangular, but not necessarily straight) area of an image?

@dshafik I'm sure something creative could be worked out using Imagick, but I don't think it would be easy.

Another approach I've seen is using HTML Canvas elements to draw it in Javascript and then have the browser save it as an image. (Doesn't quite work in all browsers, though.)

@dshafik I'dplace a div over the image via css to be able to style the image according to needs and to gave it right within the DOM for A11y reasons
