	PrintIText -- Print text described by the IntuiText argument.

	PrintIText( RastPort, IText, LeftOffset, TopOffset )
		    A0        A1     D0          D1

	VOID PrintIText( struct RastPort *, struct IntuiText *, WORD, WORD );

	Prints the IntuiText into the specified RastPort.  Sets up the RastPort
	as specified by the IntuiText values, then prints the text into the
	RastPort at the IntuiText x/y coordinates offset by the left/top
	arguments.  Note, though, that the IntuiText structure itself
	may contain further text position coordinates: those coordinates
	and the Left/TopOffsets are added to obtain the true position of
	the text to be rendered.

	This routine does window layer clipping as appropriate -- if you
	print text outside of your window, your characters will be
	clipped at the window's edge, providing you pass your window's
	(layered) RastPort.

	If the NextText field of the IntuiText argument is non-NULL,
	the next IntuiText is rendered as well, and so on until some
	NextText field is NULL.

	IntuiText with the ITextFont field NULL are displayed in the
	font of the RastPort.  If the RastPort font is also NULL, the
	system default font, as set via the Preferences tool, will be used.

	RastPort = the RastPort destination of the text
	IText = pointer to an instance of the structure IntuiText
	LeftOffset = left offset of the IntuiText into the RastPort
	TopOffset = top offset of the IntuiText into the RastPort
