      Description

      Resolution note

      This report was closed as "Invalid" because the affected characters are the ones from the assets/minecraft/textures/font/ascii.png file.

      The problem that the other unicode characters like "³" are not that big might be MC-2488.

      Many unicode characters appear as bold even there would be a way to create them with a normal font size.
      This seems to affect only the "ascii.png"

      Examples:

      • ² (there is already a report about that, but I can't find it; also ³ is not bold)
      • ÷
      • ≤ and ≥ (well maybe with a normal font size they would look strange)
      • Σ
      • °
      • ± (but ∓ isn't like this)
        and probably many more

      Some that are also "messed up":

      • \u00aa -> ª
      • \u00ae -> ®
      • \u00bc -> ½
      • \u00bd -> ¾
      • \u00f8 -> ø
        These are too big. They do not appear bold but you cannot read them

      How to reproduce: (from [Mod] Kumasasa's comment)
      Type

      ABCDäöüß  ² ³ ÷ ≤ ≥ √ Σ ° ∞ ∩ ∈ ∅ ± ∓ test

      in the chat

      All of these characters have a bold form, but this form is very hard to differentiate from the normal form or you cannot really read it anymore.
      I am sorry if this report is invalid because these characters are made like this to differentiate from other characters
