The font Fantasque Sans Mono is described as being suitable for
programmers. However, its glyphs fail to sufficiently distinguish
* The glyphs for accent characters <U+0060 `>, <U+00B4 ´> do not match
correctly. They should be left-right mirror images, but instead the
“grave” accent incorrectly looks like a single-open-quote glyph.
* The single-quote characters <U+0027 '>, <U+2018 ‘>, <U+2019 ’> have
glyphs that are virtually indistinguishable. The <U+0027 '> glyph
should not be left or right biased.
By comparison, the double-quote characters <U+0022 ">, <U+201C “>,
<U+201D ”> have conventional and sufficiently distinct glyphs.
There may be other glyphs which in this font are unhelpful to
programmers, but these have caught my attention.
