Are there any unicode/font/... geeks who can explain to me (in simple words) why the character ⏠ ("U+23E0 TOP TORTOISE SHELL BRACKET") causes some following characters to appear larger than normal? E.g., using ⎝ ("U+239D LEFT PARENTHESIS LOWER HOOK"):


⎝⏠⎝

(If you can't see the above, or if it all looks fine to you, here's what I see.) All these SHOULD be the same size, as far as I can tell, but they're not. Why? o.o

Interesting, thanks! Coupled with the comments about OS X above, it seems like it's an issue with windows font rendering, then — and one that persists even in windows 7 (which I also checked).

Perhaps; I really lack the expertise to make even an educated guess what is going wrong here and where. :)

I should probably experiment more and find out which trailing characters are affected this way — I already found yesterday that not all are.
