How much does a dino weigh?

Thanks for your edifying post on theropod size.
As long as we're dealing with size issues, mind if I ask:  can a dino's
weight be estimated with substantial confidence?
I've seen published numbers, and wondered how everything from amount of fat
to internal organs to muscle tissue (how thick and how heavy) to bone mass
has been decided.
What margin of error should I keep in mind?
Thanks all over again.
