I did a quick test at 12pt and measured length for
lazy dog line .....  ff/opera/msie  were all same at 123mm
amaya came in at 108mm  ie about 88% of the length of
the others ---> once again the purist approach may not 
be the best approach when developing a tool if it intended
for 'real world' designers who are producing product for all
users...  a conform to concensus viewpoint may bring the
tool into mainstream use.... 
can anyone justify the shortness --- are they all out of step 
except our Jacque????
