I'm looking for a font with ZERO spacing surrounding the characters, specifically numbers 0-9. Matching math symbols, specifically: +, -, ×, ÷, =, should be centered horizontally and vertically in regards to 0-9 characters
My use case is that I will be using them individually and am trying to avoid having to create an image of each character, and then manually crop and align each individually. This is for a website.
Searching via Google has yielded nothing except for programming adjustments (CSS) that will affect the placement of characters within their bounding box, but won't diminish the actual box dimensions for a given, large, font size (eg: 30px). Adjusting line-height still results in whitespace top and bottom in the elements bounding box.
Seems so hard to believe that this problem hasn't been solved (and a font of this sort already created somewhere!)
UPDATE: I found as solution for my specific issue, but I am still very interested in thoughts as to an existing font that would alleviate the base issue (unnecessary space for accent characters, and drop characters). My understanding is that monospaced fonts only describe the space between characters (not vertical alignment.)
