Dynamic Text around an Ellipse

Recently I had to create a dynamic menu that required some text to wrap around an ellipse. Getting the rotation correct involved calculating the angle of the tangent around the ellipse which was a challenge. Also the letter spacing was tricky and I don’t think I have the best solution for this but it seems to work quite well.

Here is a quick demo I put together tonight of it in action
