I have never made a font so bare with me if this is a beginner question. I am wondering what the dimensions are of a monospaced font. I understand that since it is monospaced every glyph has the same width, but that's all I understand.
I'm wondering about the other dimensions.
Specifically, #1, #2, #3, #5, #19, #20.
Basically, what the midpoint of the glyph is (where the lines cross on the
x, or the line on the
e), what the baseline is (how high from the bottom of the
g), or alternatively how far below the baseline the long letters go like the
g. Also, how far above the lowercase letters the tall letters go (like the
If it is different for every monospace font, then that's good to know. Maybe there is a standard range though, so it's not a super tall and narrow font. Wondering if it needs to be a perfect square (width == height), or if not, yeah then what the dimensions typically are.
