Those are the default values, but it's worth noting that on Windows all of
those values (and many more) are settable.  As you've done with the registry
setting for CaptionHeight, if you need precise placement of multiple windows
you'll also want to get "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control
Panel\desktop\WindowMetrics\BorderWidth", and do your abs(tValue / 15) to
convert Windows' "twips" to standard pixels.

BTW: Why does Windows use twips?
