[ProgSoc] Determining Netscape Font Size
I am using CSS (cascade Style Sheets) in a project where I need to
select an area of text. For this I am using layers, the select layer is
below a text area.
Now I need to align the text with the "background" layers, and to
do so I need to define the font and size of it in pixels, and be able to
define it for a user regardless of user "browser setup".
That is why I need to know how to define the actual pixel width
and height of a font(Courier) when displayed by Netscape. If you specify
the size with a style-sheet e.g. "font-size: 10px" netscape does not
necessarily display that font at that size.
I am currently using a <pre> tag so we have fixed width text, and
it doesn't always work, any suggesttions.
