Getting textShift To Shift Down?

Anyone have any insight on getting textShift to shift text downward?

I need to vertically align blocks text on a line that use different fonts.
 Whether I select a block of text, or all the text around the selection,
things shift up, but never down.

Here's a simple stack that demonstrates the problem.

This is LiveCode 7.0.6 (I need to use this version).  I've tried including
bits of texts with textShift set to zero on the same line.  I've tried
assigning positive/negative textShift values to multiple selections of
text on the same line.  Text always shifts upward.

Somebody, please offer a workaround so I can stop the blood loss from the
continuous head beating against the wall that's been taking place over
here.

Thanks & Regards,
