Hmm upon reflection, both the square and the underline have the issue that
the width changes with the character you're overwriting. So for example a
square the covers a "i" is narrower than a square that covers an "m". It
would be impossible to complete cover the an italic "f" in Times New Roman
since it overlaps the previous character.
We'd need to change findPointCoords() to get this width no impossible but
a bit of a pain.
