comment what is the largest glyph width in Arial?
it's W. You could try this out yourself - but someone already did the work for you :-) See this - stackoverflow.com/questions/3949422/… but personally I wouldn't design around the widest character as it's almost certainly going to be generally too wide if you allow space for 35 W's

You can sort of get closer to that by making the points on the top edge closer to each other and the same with the bottom edge, so that you squeeze the top and the bottom while keeping the middle constant. - I added an example image above

@funguy not a website race - a website about a 10,000 meter running event. As another example lets say your header image on an e-commerce shopping site has occasional promotional or status messages built into the image. Instead of cluttering your server with different image files and having to come up with a new unique file name that you know you haven't used before, EVERY time you update or revert the header image on the website - this mechanism would allow you to use the same image file name whilst ensuring that visitors will always see the latest version.

1302118869 = Wed Apr 06 2011. Probably it was the last time that page was regenerated. It just ensures that you always see the image on the website, not the one cached on your machine. It may not have actually appeared to change since YOU last visited it, but who's to say it hasn't changed back and forth in the mean time?
