Topic: Font width calculation/regeneration ?

Hi

Does anyone have any good/useful tips/resources that
helps with truetype font regeneration ?

I am working on a program that needs to regenerate
font width for the /Widths array, where most of the
characters' widths were left as 0 when the document
was convertd from Word to PDF. I then need to replace
some text string in the stream and there are 2 things
I need to worry about

1) font width for the missing characters, which of
course I could choose to specify some fixed values
depending on the basefont type, but this will not
be an elegant solution, will it ?

2) the new string may be shorter or longer than the
original string which becomes tricky, I will leave
that in a separate post instead.

Thanks
MCW
