Home Forums CSS Styling text as rows of pixels? Re: Styling text as rows of pixels?


I finally ended up re-generating the html with inline CSS in each tag to set the pixel width, then set “overflow: hidden” and “white-space: nowrap” properties. This let me set the spans to be (for example) 26px wide if there were 26 characters inside. I did have to break the lines manually, which is annoying, but doable.
