Lovely font. Thank you for sharing.

I have a few minor niggles. The first one that really jumped out at me is the width of the hyphen. It's a little too narrow in my opinion. When used in an arrow (e.g. ->) it leaves a gap between the characters which I find a little jarring. On the other hand, the equals sign is a little wider and works perfectly for double arrows (e.g.=>). I think the hyphen should be made a little wider so that it's the same width as the equals sign (and also the crossbar of the plus sign).

I also noticed a tiny discrepancy in the vertical alignment of some characters. Curly braces are exactly symmetrical about the vertical midline, but angle brackets, hypen, equals and plus signs are all slightly above it. To be honest, I'm not sure I would really notice the difference in real life usage, but I thought I'd mention it anyway.

Here's an illustration.

I realise I'm nit-picking, but that's because the font is so close to perfect that it's only really trivial things that I can find fault with.

I may take a second look at the alignments of these characters. Thanks.


This behavior has been implemented in version 1.013.
