The reason for the space characters at the top of the picture is because the first line on the preview panel seems always to start with a small space. When I am trying to produce a design with a font where all of the glyphs are of equal width, that small space stops the first row being directly above the second row, so I worked round the situation by making the first row all spaces.

Well, I think it would be good to have as many images using colour fonts from as many people as possible in the Gallery.
I like to encourage people to have a go at publishing something. I have found that if I get started with something basic then that is then my starting point to have a go at something else and then that is my new starting point. So I encourage everybody who has started to design a colour font to consider posting an image in the Gallery please.
By the way, I have just realized that the top bar of the preview panel in your image is a much lighter colour than the top bar of the preview panel in my images: why is that please?
