why not just use a canvas shader? so we dont have to apply the fx from C2? having it inside directly.

The issue is having multiple colors/font weights in the same text run, which sprite fonts don't currently support. @Ashley mentioned a markup language to achieve this, and as an example Unity uses a system mostly similar to HTML and I've found it to be a good solution. It has an option to generate a separate texture atlas for every required font weight, and handles them in a way comparable to having multiple animation frames in C2 - a list of assigned images, basically. It'd be nice to see a similar system in C2 and would open up a lot of interesting possibilities with fonts, even if for the time being we have to generate each texture atlas outside of C2.
