Below are a couple of designs from my fonts, Kabala and Cankama, compared to the pound sterling sign.
If you intend to add it to a lot of fonts, or to all future fonts, you might like to update CompositeData.xml (make a backup first in case of errors) to add a definition for Turkish Lira. This speeds up the design process. Complete Composites will insert a pound sterling sign at an empty glyph if it is mapped to code-point 8378 (or added using Insert Characters), using the same metrics for side-bearings and advance width. Make it simple, then modify the glyph as you wish, to make it suitable for the Turkish Lira design.
Code: Select all
<GlyphMapping>8378</GlyphMapping> <Member id="1"> <GlyphMapping>163</GlyphMapping> <UseMetrics>TRUE</UseMetrics> </Member> </Composite>
