Description

Even though using a fixed sized font, when the minus char is rendered with zoom to 100%, the caret is advanced of a little bit more space than other chars.
If you have a lot of adjacent '-' you can see a strange "floating space" effect.
If you try to draw some "ascii art" blocks using the '-' all the alignement is bad (see internet packet representation, or HRESULT layout comment at the beginning of winerror.h)
