What is the widest glyph in Arial?
I'm designing a
div container that will contain some rows of text. Every row can contain 0 to 35 chars.
I need to specify a fixed width for the div, but I cannot predict how "wide" the string can be.
An example of strings (all 35 chars):
- da da da 35 chars text With CApital
As you can see, the glyph "i" is narrower than the glyph "L".
A possible solution could be to use a Monospaced font, but for some stylistic constraints I need to use Arial (or equivalent font).
The idea is to size the container considering a string that contains the largest glyphs, but I am not sure what is the largest glyph, especially if we consider all the UTF characters.
Just one thing to say:
[EDIT] Update - OK - I concede there are some much wider characters: ØØØØØØØØØØØØØØØØØØØØØØØØØØØØØØØØØØØ
