But look how long it's been since anything remotely informative has been posted since that one test patch came out. Nada. Zip. Zilch. I've made my point. You lose. :) If IE does it by using the letter 'a' or whatever then yeah it should be done that way for EXACT results. Eventually. Right now I'd just like to see those text boxs not so huge in height like they are right now. They were talking about counting in pixels in order to get the correct size & format. It's called using a ficken ratio! Whatever size it is now must decrease in width & height by and x percentages. Can't be too hard other than that darn problem of counting pixals. :) The Netscape developers might think they are close enough to the exact size but I know that they can do better than that. I've also thought that there would be an easy way to say "Okay, here's a font. I will add the textbox border after an x amount of pixals around the default number of fonts that should be visable". To me, that sounds simple and then the textbox would then be rendered in the right place. Having the text 'wrap around' the textbox seems like the more logical solution, don't you think? :) I'm not really good at math so don't ask me for specific numbers but simpler solutions are the more practical solutions for tough problems like these.
