Agreed, but I'd rather we waited for browsers to catch up and implement <canvas> well before adding yet more things for them to get wrong. :-)

Hi there,

I was just wondering. From the Spec here: the TextMetrics object contains a readonly width property which is missing on the whatwg wiki you linked to above: That confuses me a little, is that property now dropped or are these sources only out of sync?

Thanks for the job guys.
