I have discovered a truly remarkable method of finding the width of text in proportional fonts in PDFs, which this comment field is too small to contain.
Interested Perl/PDF hackers want to know! Perhaps you could write it up as a node on Perl Monks [perlmonks.org].
d there are 2.83 milimeters to each postscipt point
A point is 1/72 of an inch, so there's no way a point can measure 2.83mm. Dividing 25.4mm/72, I get 0.3527mm for a point. Oh, you got them reversed, a mm is 2.834pt.
