   I don't have the exact dimenstions. You can check it here (Open 
Office document):

   I will learn Metafun right now. Do you think I can get Context to 
write a music list in a way that the text fits automatically into the 
label? I would like to create a standard template for labels so that I 
could change only the music list and title. That list could be as small 
as 3 songs or as big as 30 songs organized into sections.
