I want to know if and how you can determine how many characters can fit in a textarea object at a given size.  I want to make my textarea wrappable, that way text will automatically wrap to the next line when it reaches the bounds of the width of the textarea.  Is this possible and how can I do it?

Use the FontMetrics class in java.awt to get the dimensions of both characters and strings.
