This tutorial describes a two-step process for creating beveled text in 
POV-Ray with an isosurface.  First an image map is created of the text 
to be manipulated; then the image map is read into a pigment function, 
which is used for the isosurface.  The technique avoids the inside 
corner artifacts of Bevelled_Text(), can create rounded edges, and works 
with any font.

I have made a minor update: I no longer recommend the 'once' keyword in
the image map.
