Typing a 7
Can anyone please tell me how I can type in the french number 7?
The 7 that has the horizontal strikethrough.
I have looked in the W8 character map and cannot see any sign of it.
There must be a was as I have seen it on several websites.
All help much appreciated
Do you have an example of that?
I don't believe bar-lined 7 is an actual font set glyph. By hand you should always write the 7 with a bar since it distinguishes it from the 1, especially for people like me that have illegible writing.
In HTML, it's simply a matter of:
Which gives the same effect.
If you can find the actual page it was used on though, then we can take a look at the ascii character in use or whatever entity was used. "7" is pretty obvious in typed text, so I don't think it was ever added as a character (but potentially a font set uses it).
I’ve also never seen that as a character in most default fonts used in the various OSs. But there are certainly fonts that have that kind of style to the 7 character. And the 7 with the horizontal bar is not just specific to French. In fact, the only country I’ve noticed people writing the 7 without the bar is the USA.
