[1 mod] [Ubuntu Mono] Consecutive underscores should have visible
Status in Ubuntu Font Family:
Status in fonts-ubuntu package in Ubuntu:
1. At a terminal: pango-view --font="Ubuntu Mono 12" --markup
--text='<span fallback="false"> ABC _ __ ___ ____</span>'
I would like to propose that the font render underscores in such a way that consecutive underscores have breaks in between them rather than making one long line. That would make it easier to verify at a glance that, for example, a preprocessor macro in C starts with two underscores rather than three. You can estimate that from the length of the line, but it would be easier if it were visible at a glance.
