Here is a simple test:

There are 2 potential "issues", if you want to call them that.

FIrst, D2D seems to increase the spacing between characters within the same word in some cases instead of just the spacing between words. It isn't too bad, but there doesn't seem to be a way to just use the "normal" space between characters in the same word like you would think.

Second, it's difficult to calculate the correct width of the meter when no W is defined - so a width needs to be defined to make this work.

I'll look into these issues and hopefully come up with a solution.

This looks really great, Brian. I'll echo all of @Yincognito's first couple of points. I have no idea how you have figured this out so far but I'm definitely here for it. Great work!
