OK - thanks for replying. The mix of horizontal and vertical had made
me wonder if there was something profound I was missing.

I presume then, that this is just a convenient approximation to a
character width - and is being used on the basis that drawing a title
skinner than a character would be silly, but only a rough approximation
is needed, hence comparing with barheight is good enough.
