Primarily the "main" formatting characteristics such as font name, size and style if applicable; with embedded/bitmap fonts the style is what it is, of
course. Anti aliasing or sharpness likely are not going to make a big
difference in the width, and they do not apply anyway with bitmap fonts.

Try it on some fonts, you'll be amazed ;)

You could, of course, make multiple metrics fields, one for each
typeface/size/style you want to measure, but just as well there can be just
one off-stage field that is set to whatever style settings you want to
currently measure.

Isn't it a pain for dynamic apps ?
Hm, let me try.
