It appears that when using fillText and strokeText the optional maxWidth parameter does nothing.

Yah. I did a bit more research and it doesn't look like it's implemented in all the major browsers either.

I'd actually do a patch myself, but I'm not entirely sure how best to handle the different potential font measurements (em vs. px). The regex for parsing it out the different parts of the font might be fun as well.

        do {
          ctx.font = fontWeight + ' ' + fontSizePx + 'px ' + fontStack
          if (ctx.measureText(text).width > maxWidth) {
        } while (fontSizePx > 1 && ctx.measureText(text).width > maxWidth)
