Hi,

The UTF-8 code for it is U+2423 and it is called "Open Box" (␣).

In LaTeX you can use the \textvisiblespace{} macro.

Hi, everybody.

In my specifications, I often need to “show” a space character … for a
text format sample, for example.

I usually use a fixed-width font (Consolas) for these format samples.
This helps to make the space character obvious, but isn’t perfect.

Elsewhere, I have also seen the use of an underscore-like character with
little “upticks” at the end.

What do you all do for this purpose? If you use a printing character to
denote a space, what character do you use?

Is there a character in a fixed-width font (ideally Consolas ... I went
looking but did not find something convenient) that would be good?


Thanks!

Z
