If he lacks a volt-meter, it's probably worth following your advice and 
putting in a bigger resistor and trying it - if he doesn't get the range 
he needs then he can always swap the resistor.  It's a bit of trial and 
error.  Also depends on the LED of course - some of the really bright ones 
have got excessively high current ratings anyway :)
