This is excellent. As a programmer what I want is to understand the abstract data structures behind the nodes view. I don't get that from the documentation nor the YouTube tutorials. Thanks!

How does text fit into this model?

@Marty Fouts Text in terms of information can be passed around using the String datatype in Geometry Nodes. When you are talking about text in 3D space, that is done by converting the string using a font into geometry. You can use the String to Curves node to generate curves from the text. These you can then process like any other geometry. For example filling the curves and extruding the mesh.

@Simon Thommes In order to manipulate the extruded text with a following "Bevel" modifier, I needed to use a "Realize Instances" node.
