User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.9b1) Gecko/2007113004 Minefield/3.0b1 Build Identifier: mozMeasureText only returning the width of the string makes writing text layout a bit hard. I could really use height and baseline. Especially since the text draw origin is the font baseline. It's very difficult to e.g. write text inside a box (don't know height, and even if did, don't know baseline.) For checking if the mouse cursor is above the text, creating a path that consists of rectangles (of glyph-width * font-height -size) would be useful. I'd propose: 1) making mozMeasureText return an object with all the text dimensions 2) making it possible to set text origin (top-left, baseline) 3) adding mozTextRect and mozTextRectAlongPath to create the rectangle paths [ 4) text alignment as part of text style might be nice ] Reproducible: Always
