This has been a tricky issue for me. I used to list every possible size estimate in a huge table that had 5 columns for widths (sizes) and 30 or more rows for all the typical combinations of numbers of characters and columns for the calligraphy.

The length varies greatly depending on the number of characters, number of columns, style of calligraphy, and even the mood of the calligrapher. I can only control width with any essence of accuracy.

Here's the part you missed. There's actually a "[+] more details" link that makes this appear:

I got a lot of suggestions from customers that this size info was overwhelming. So I just show the basic info (size titles such as small, medium, etc) unless someone wants more and clicks that "[+] more details" link.
