IN TYPOGRAPHY A FONT SIZE IS MEASURED BY THE NUMBER OF VERTICAL POINTS BETWEEN THE TOP OF ANY UPPERCASE LETTER (CAP) AND THE BOTTOM OF ANY LOWERCASE LETTER DESCENDER (TAIL)...

- CAP + TAIL = HEIGHT (@ 72 POINTS PER INCH)

THE FOLLOWING REPORTS THE THE ACTUAL INDIVIDUAL HEIGHTS IN POINTS FOR THREE BOLD VERDANA UPPER AND LOWER CASE CHARACTERS IN FOUR FONT SIZES.

ALSO, IT SHOULD BE NOTED THAT THE 26-LETTER ALPHABET CONTAINS ONLY FOUR SMALL LETTERS WITH ASCENDERS (STEMS) AND ONLY FIVE SMALL LETTERS WITH (TAILS), PLUS THERE IS ONE UPPERCASE LETTER WITH A TAIL:

- b, d, h AND l

- g, j, p, q, y AND Q

FINALLY, THESE VALUES ARE APPROXIMATIONS AND EXACT NUMBERS WOULD REQUIRE THE USE OF A POINT SIZE GAUGE, A COSTLY DEVICE.
