I find it quite extraordinary, at this stage of the game, that there isn't an O/S routine that can accurately return how wide (and even how high) is the space taken up by specified text using specified font(s). Unfortunately that isn't provided so we have to use the excellent work that Stevan Lebans has contributed (See Phil's links).
