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!!

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
