Hello font folks,
This is not a matter of life & death, just an annoyance.
I'm writing the documentation of a subroutine library where, du to the
number of routines,
all names are prefixed for easy grouping/finding.
There is an underline character in every name which does not look good
I had this problem even in troff where I tried to lift the underline
character by translating it to \(ru.
I've found that \(ul and \(ru are recognized by groff but they give me
the same problem as before:
they are shorter than other (Courier) characters and this upsets
I've found that \(ul and \(ru are not coming from a font (not
referenced in \xxx octal form), but
generated by groff and/or grops as `.. moveto .. lineto stroke' things.
Could you suggest a remedy to this little anomaly? Courier was supposed
to be mono spaced.
