Is it possible to query a Mathematica graph (2dimensions) in order to obtain the height of a character in the current font measured in term of the units for the y-axis. I need this in order to be able to position some multiline tick labels on a special-purpose axis that I have. (Note: I can obtain the width and height of a typical character in the current font in my favourite (statistical) programme I use for drawing graphs and it is very useful facility.)
