That way, you may end up in a not usable GUI because German "Hinzufügen" is a 
lot longer than 
Englisch "Add". The only way to do it is a dynamic layout like Renaissance or 
any browser is doing it.

Counting pixels reminds me on my first days with computers where I used to draw 
pixels on papers.
That was for Amiga who did not have dynamic GUIs before MUI.

We have 2007 now and should not be dependant on the Users Font size, Screen 
size etc...
