when I do
mText2D = 
 ImportString[ExportString[Cell[TextData[StyleBox["BCD E", FontWeight -> "Bold"]], "Section"], "PDF"]][[1]]

Show[mText2D /. Polygon[l_] :> {Thickness[0.001], Line[l]}, Frame -> True,ImageSize -> 240]
Such a small code and so informative!
I get an impression what happens to the text. All the outlines are visible under these conditions. Indeed, spaces are transformed in images. However one can also observe that letters are connected with a line. With a polygon such a line falls away. So, I asked myself: why not with " "? It would be easy to connect to a next letter. 

I got a lot of work arounds. Thank you very much.
