More than the width of the text, I'm interested in the ratio between the width of the text and the width of an underline character (assuming monospace). > So assuming the string you have will eventually be displayed in some > window -- and most strings in Emacs are of that kind -- you should use > that window up front.

Since it is the output of an export process, it could, e.g., be written to a file. I applied Shingo Tanaka's suggestion using `string-width', which is the best we can do considering our requirements. Thank you for your answer, and to Shingo Tanaka for the report an the patch. Regards,
