Subject Text of given font width
Date Mon, 04 Jan 2010 14:31:31 GMT
I need to programatically get a width of some text (word, specifically) in a
given font, size and style, which will be generated in Apache FOP (version
0.95) PDF document.

The problem is that I need to know, if given word will fit to a column with
a known width, and if it won't - resize to a fitable size. So far I have
used java.awt.FontMetrics.stringWidth() method for this, but it seems that
Java AWT's and FOP's PDF renderer generate text of different sizes.
