Whats the tallest Unicode glyph (By the characters look). The tallest I've seen them is like the giant half parenthesis, that stretch 3 lines.


Like this one: ⎝ (This font it only goes 2 lines). I'm trying to pull off a "visual glitch" with a different project. Also for bonus if someone can find me the WIDEST Glyph, id appreciate it.

  • Aside from swashes, generally speaking the italics lower-case f spans the descender, ascender, and x-height. An Em dash comes in denominations, 2-em, 3-em.

  • interesting, Ill have to check it out. Im only searching for this character to use it as a sort of "exploit" in a game that has to do with custom names. Oct 4, 2019 at 11:33

It all depends on the font.

Take the font Zapfino, for instance. It has multiple glyphs for the same unicode characters, some of which are very curly and tall.

    I don’t understand your question. You have the name of the font. Oct 8, 2019 at 6:30
  • The illustration @KrisVanBael supplied is an image because Stack doesn't support using any random font in answers. As has been mentioned, you have the name of the font; try it on actual text. Nov 6, 2019 at 15:30
