Subject Re: How: calculate the length of a text
Date Wed, 05 Feb 2003 16:15:35 GMT
You could use a monospace font (e.g., font-family="Courier New, Courier, 
monospace"), measure the width of each character, and then count the 
number of characters.

Of course, the font-size, will be significant. 8pt Courier text is a 
little <2mm wide. You'd also have to consider that spaces at the end of 
a line may be removed in favor of a linefeed.

Hope this helps!
