How can I display exclusive-OR text using the Win32 SDK?  All of the SetROP2() functions seem to only work on the current pen functions.

Create a bitmap and write the text onto the bitmap. Use BitBlt to XOR the bitmap.

Do you have an example of the ROP codes used for the BitBlt() - also what color is the background of the bitmap?
