Description matthias.klaey 2012-12-18 00:58:22 UTC
Dear DejaVu team,

For the open-source terminal project 'YAT' I would like to display symbols for the ASCII control characters U+240?, especially U+240A and U+240D. Unfortunately, DejaVu has not yet implemented these characters. Could you add them in an upcoming version?
Other fonts implement these characters by simply placing the letters of the ASCII abbreviations on top of each other, slightly spaced, diagonally aligned from top-left to bottom-right. Such an example can be found at <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ASCII#ASCII_control_characters>, however, I prefer larger and therefore better readable letters, which are kind of merged together as described above.

Thanks & Best regards,
