are there any methods of figuring out how "large" a piece of typeset textual data will be?
... after the front end gets done formatting it? I was thinking about getting the front end to spit out an equivalent EPS for the text and extracting the size from that, but I don't know if I can do it properly. Is there an easy method? Perhaps via some kind of API? The context for this question is that I am trying to generate "labels" (expressions) for nodes in a graph. I am trying to diagram functions. -- http://chris.chiasson.name/
