Certainly not -- usually, glyph outlines follow geometrical principles
to avoud overlapping outlines.

Something like that:

               |                          |
               |                      ----+-------
               |                      |   |      |
               |----------------------+---|      |
                                      |          |

> Do you remember if that was the font?
