Type in: Z256015Y$(%*#&Z
Update (03. Apr '09):
the horizontal lines above and below the vertical bars are there only to ensure proper spacing between bars. You might want to remove that, although it won't interfere with barscanners.
- there should be no space between the characters, fontsruct generates them this way. You'll have to compensate.(corrected thanks to thalamic)
With Kerning support added to fontstruct, no more horizontal bars are needed. I shall update the tutorial illustration as well.
