Description

Processes text stylization, including support for style inheritance, and returns the results as a ds_map.

note

!Important note: The resulting ds_map is temporary and must be destroyed outside this script when finished to prevent memory leaks!

As this script is run automatically by any text scripts supporting style inheritance, it is never necessary to run sys_text_style_init manually.
