    Hello,
    I work with the W3C Accessibility Guidelines working group. I recently wrote little app to measure average character width as laid out by browsers at run time. This average width is the average center to center width between characters. I measure using the 95 ascii characters, but it works for any language.

    My problem was to compare the width impact of a user’s choice compared to what the author provided. But, I can see applications to your problems.

    I set the font-size to 16px, but you can use it up to 500% easily. It’s a little rough because we are applying it write policy.

    Sincerely, Wayne Dick
