I don't know, but your SEO will certainly be doomed.
Seems like a poor idea to me.
1) if it's to circumvent content rules here, you'll get busted eventually by a human.
2) no search engine can read it.
Graphically rendered body text is generally regarded as poor web design, since it varies so much by screen resolution and size, whereas real text is text, which each device displays in a way that is as readable as possible on that machine.
Fewer readers will find it, since you're writing it in a form that can't be read by browsers or search engines.
Most importantly, you need to consider that the web is a godsend for visually impaired and blind people, and every one of them that can afford it is using the web to get the bulk of their information. Screen readers allow them to participate in the web and read any text, but they can't see graphics. This includes not only blind users, but people like me with minor vision issues. I prefer reading by computer or tablet to printed material because I can boost the font size or enhance contrast with my browser's settings, or, on days when my eyes are just too dodgy, I get my computer to read aloud. It's impossible to do that with text-as-graphics.
As of 2001 there were 180 million visually impaired persons worldwide, and by now the number of visually impaired web users has to be getting close to that number. That's a large enough demographic that it's wise to make your content accessible to screen readers whenever possible.
Text-as-graphics is also a problem for readers accessing the web with tablets or mobile devices, a market which is growing very, very rapidly-- there will soon be more people reading the web from mobile devices than computers. Several major news publications just got egg on their faces for publishing iPad editions as graphics rather than text, which not only can't be searched and navigated, but which are displayed as blurry and out of focus because the iPad has to upscale them now that screen resolution has doubled.
I have noticed that Hubpages' image uploader tends to make screenshots blurry and out of focus, as it's trying to save file size. I can't read the result.
