Center text within a field?

I'm trying to center text in a field within a graphic (circle). The
text can be any font and any size.
I've been experimenting with code to center text within the field and
then set the loc of the circle to the loc of the field. I have yet to
find a method that perfectly centers text of any given font and any
given size within a field though.
Among other things I tried using the formattedRect of char X, but
that doesn't report the true size of the character as it appears on
the screen (textheight seems to be used for the reported height).
While this works for some fonts, it doesn't for others.
So I'm wondering if anyone has any ideas or has done this before?
