I'm afraid you got it wrong. Talking about HEAD now: The AWT renderer
in HEAD is non-functional ATM. What you need to look at is
SingleByteFont (ex. Type 1) and MultiByteFont (ex. TTF) in the
org.apache.fop.fonts package. Both classes implement the FontMetrics
interface which lets you access glyph widths. FontReader is the class
that loads the XML font metrics.

The PostScript renderer is not using AWT font metrics. It uses the
metrics coming from the Single/MultiByteFonts as does the PDF renderer.

I hope this helps.
