Exactly ! I'm looking at dynamic osgText.
I
 have tried to add quads in osgText (modifying osg sources), when
text->setDrawMode(osgText::Text::BOUNDINGBOX) is activated... but text
letters and background melt is not very beautiful... I'm ajusting some
parameters... but I don't thing it is enough.

Thanks,

regard,
    Vincent.
