On E-bay I've seen both measurements, middle to middle, and outside to outside. What is the universal (or at least correct) way to measure handlebar width?

Different manufacturers measure different ways - some center-to-center and some outside-to-ouside. It's just like bike frames, each manufacturer does what they want in order to frustrate consumers. :)

I would go with a center to center measurement. I go larger rather than smaller. Bringing your arms together can constrict breathing.
