    to allow for this, we need to refactor our current drawing methods, and not just patch in new stuff imo. I have an old quote that I would like (to see) implemented:

    "if a run is transparent, it should ask its parent to draw into the given rectangle, until the parent isn't transparent or the parent == document"

    this would solve this issue, as well as stuff like highlighting text in table cells that have a background color set.
