To really see this, start IDLE either from an icon or 'python -m
idlelib' (use 'python3' on *nix) on a command line. Open the settings
dialog with Options => Configure IDLE. On the Font tab there is a Font
Sample box. Go to the bottom and enter several _____s. In the Windows
Courier font, and several others, this looks like one line. On the
left, try other fonts. On Windows, switching to Source Code Pro (and
some others) results in separate underscores. Source Code Pro, as the
name suggests, is aimed at programmers, and we need to be able to count
Or maybe you can switch fonts in your mail reader and see what happens
to the underscores above.
