Are all typefaces {fonts, letters, characters, graphic marks, sorts, symbols}
the same? Like x|y and do they have the same spacing of “punctuation
marks” and other ‘symbols’ from the left or right characters/symbols¿
The answer is: no! Some people think micro-typography makes no
difference and the public will never notice the difference. Well who knows
what??? some times errors [] happen, like U+FFFD or .notdef and we know
not why <…> Here are some examples [although I am over-emphasizing
of course—] of characters and symbols {+0–100 or -0–100 or ≥0–100
or <0–100 or ≥0–100 or ≤0–100 or ±0 or 0+0 or 0×0 or 0÷0, and not
π3.1415926 or 0′ or 0}. I hope you find this text useful, and it is free of
charge (but you must credit the source, see the italic text at the end*):
that is: £0.₀₀ and $0.⁰⁰ and ¢0, or maybe €0 «nessun addebito/no charge
in Italian» but the Greeks’ say Ītalíā or ›bez poplatku/no charge in Czech
but the International Phonetic Alphabet will tell you chĕk, or even further
away ¥0. Essentially it is ©free, that is 0%, 1:1 ratio cost. Which is also
the same as the √0 (square root) of nothing, and ≠ (not equal to) ≈ (almost
equal to), basically the opposite of; ∞ (infinite). But never!!! micro- (Greek
letter μ) a unit prefix meaning a factor of 10⁻⁶ (one millionth). Maybe try
hashtag #nonsense to see what others advise… We need a new par⁓graph,
as I have been rambling for too long now, more than ⅔’s of the time.

him about Handgloves and; The quick brown fox that jumps over the
lazy dog at building Nº7. Hopefully it is not too hot, like 40°C, I may
need a ¤12.5 litre drink, or else I could get problems like (j (J f). Must not

(The gobbledygook spacing and kerning test above is not responsive, you need to be able to compare the spaces accurately across the lines.)
