Different width spaces kind of defeats the whole point of a monospaced font so I doubt there are many. It would be easier to either: Edit the width of the spaces of an existing font in a font editor. FontForge is a free open source font editor. Change the word-spacing setting of whatever software you are using (most design software or word processors will ...

It's sensible to use characters, not a font. What if the font doesn't work somewhere? This caught my grandmother out when she wrote her book. She used a font for hebrew characters, and this font didn't print out - so some random letters were used instead. Instead, you should use the unicode characters. This page has them all, and a selection are below: ...

I'm sorry for answering super late, I've just noticed your mention. I'm the author of the article you link to.

Today I learnt about a new tool, which "was made just for your question". It was published in 2011 but I am sharing it here, less than one hour after I tested it: http://blog.tavultesoft.com/2011/07/character-identifier-tool.html Hope this helps, it is an .exe so will probably need Windows.

Typeface vs. Font. The first term focusses on the design, the second refers to the files you use, but the terms are often simply used interchangeably. Your legal questions. There are no general answers for this. Each font (even the free ones from Google Fonts for example) come with a license and you need to check that license to see what you are allowed to ...
