I am trying to use the font "Microsoft Sans Serif" in an application where numbers are of high importance, and am facing one single issue:
Using the development tool's default font size, the comma and the period are hardly distinguishable.
Below is a heavily zoomed screenshot using font size 8 (height 11).
This font is the only one that I know of that is compatible with MS Sans Serif in terms of average character width, and is the main reason why I cannot choose some other font.
I even tried editing the font using various software, just to extend the comma a little, but the exported font either lost in rendering quality (although hinting was kept intact), or even offset by 1px vertically.
What are my options at this point? Is there anything at all that I can do regarding this matter?
