The M+ console font

Sinan Ünür sent me a screenshot of his use of the console font M+. He uses ConEmu, one of the tabbed console programs I showed in Windows Command Shells. It has the same failings that they all do since they all use the same underpinnings, but it’s other features are nice. He’s talked about some of his struggles:

Sinan needed to show exponents (or superscripts), so he needed a font that had the correct glyphs for that. That’s one of the huge problems for these consoles since the font support if very rudimentary. With that, font suppliers aren’t motivated to support much of the Universal Character Set.

After installing the font, configuring ConEmu to use it, and setting the code page to 65001 (chcp 65001), he gets the superscripts that he wants.
