Returns the descender of the active font.
The descender is a typographic value that specifies the maximum extent to which characters in the active font descend below the baseline.
The descender is normally a negative value. However, it is always returned as a positive value to make the usage easier.
If the function succeeds the return value is the typographic descender of the active font as positive double. If the function fails the return value is an error message.
