I need a font for a project that has no descenders below the baseline. Here is a link that explains font terminology:
The descent is the part of a letter that dips below the baseline. For example, the only the lower case of letters g,j,p,q and y seem to have descenders. I would like the bottom of the descent to rest on the baseline for these characters.
If this is not possible, is it possible to force individual characters to stand above the baseline? I am not working in html for this work, but using Adobe Illustrator (or acrobat). I see how to ungroup letters in illustrator, but I have such a large volume that this option is a last straw only.
This webpage is the best source I've font to preview fonts. I've tested the ocr-x and helvetica lineups so far. They seem to be the best fit for what I need.
