I'm looking forward to this because I use references a lot.
Unfortunately I'm not a typography so your terminology leaves me confused.

I only have experience with X11 fonts where all distances are in terms of
pixels. The size of X11 fonts can be calculated from their definitions and
I believe that abi has a mechanism to calculate the widths of text
Tab distances are given in terms of pixels which can be scaled to match
the resolution of the rendering device. I don't know the xml description
of TAB's used by abi but we have DTD on the website. Maybe you can get
your information from their.
