comment margins in beamer columns
@Herbert, can we express the column width exactly in terms of \textwidth, \columnsep or other related length commands rather than using the "magic" number 0.425?

@Will, your answer is good, but I prefer Herbert's explanation. That why I switch to his answer to be GREEN checked.

comment Vertically center text on a page
I haven't tried your code above. But I am not sure your code will produce an exact vertically-centered object since I notice your code does not specify \topskip0pt right before \begin{vplace}[1]. For more details, see tex.stackexchange.com/questions/7286/…

comment How to detect the length of the tallest letter and that of the deepest letter of the current font size?
@Ulrike, only letters or characters used for tex or latex command names including `, {, *,}. My scenario is to highlight latex or tex command using \colorbox` so I need to redefine a shortest strut to be used in \colorbox.
