Getting min\max number of caret positions for a line

Hi All,
Does anyone know how to get the minimum and maximum caret position for a particular line in JEditorPane? It seems to be dependent on the font used and the size of the fonts. What I want to be able to do is using the current caret position, select the entire row. In order to do this I would need to know the min and max caret position for that line and the current position. Is this possible to do? Many thanks for your help!!
