Calculate Text Width with jQuery

This jQuery plugin should calculate the textwidth of elements.

jQuery.fn.textWidth = function(){
    var _t = jQuery(this);
    var html_org = _t.html();
    if(_t[0].nodeName=='INPUT'){
        html_org = _t.val();
    }
    var html_calcS = '' + html_org + '';
    jQuery('body').append(html_calcS);
    var _lastspan = jQuery('span').last();
    //console.log(_lastspan, html_calc);
    _lastspan.css({
        'font-size' : _t.css('font-size')
        ,'font-family' : _t.css('font-family')
    })
    var width =_lastspan.width() + 5;
    //_t.html(html_org);
    _lastspan.remove();
    return width;
};

Mode of usage:

alert($('#theelement').textWidth());

PS: Works on input elements too.
