cross post from linguistics since I was told this was a better place to ask my question
I am not sure if this is the right place to ask, but I am making my own char set for the programing language I am working on, and have some questions?
first is, I want to have the char's of the set be composed of horizontal lines, vertical lines, and blocks with no white space separating them and a total of 256 code points. So my fist question, is there any prior work I can look into to help me figure what symbols to use for good readability.
second is, if there is prior work I can look into, based on my conditions of 256 code points, how many H X V pixels are necessary for such a char set?
thanks in advance
