Mar­ket­ing guy: If 20 char­ac­ters is the lim­it for a line, why is it wrap­ping?
Pa­tient web de­vel­op­er: I used a fake string and we changed the font since then — some let­ters are wider than oth­ers, so I have some work to do to get it to fit.
Mar­ket­ing guy: Hm­mm… I like it say­ing ‘Sys­tem Re­quire­ments’ ver­sus just ‘Re­quire­ments.‘
Pa­tient web de­vel­op­er: … How many char­ac­ters is in ‘Sys­tem Re­quire­ments’?
Mar­ket­ing guy: Nine­teen char­ac­ters, in­clud­ing the blank space be­tween the words.
Pa­tient web de­vel­op­er: Right.
Mar­ket­ing guy: So, how much would that jack with things to be able to fit 19 char­ac­ters on a line?
Pa­tient web de­vel­op­er: Dude, c’­mon. If 20 fits, then 19 will fit.
Mar­ket­ing guy: That seems like some ad­vanced math to me.
Pa­tient web de­vel­op­er: Yeah, sor­ry. Did­n’t mean to get all math‑y on you.
