I am missing something here. The question was about the height of text in 
pixels, which is the textHeight. The formattedText has to do with line 
wrapping, that is, physical lines versus formatted lines.

An old, old HC XFCN called "wordwrap" inserted return characters at the 
appropriate places in a field based on text and field properties. It I used it 
everywhere. The formattedText essentially replaces this functionality.
