Elements' Details
Ascent
short Ascent;
Description
specifies the portion of a lower case character that rises above the height of the character "x" of the font.

For example, the letters 'b', 'd', 'h', 'k' and 'l' have an ascent unequal to 0.

The ascent is measured in pixels, thus the font metric is device dependent.

Descent
short Descent;
Description
specifies the portion of a letter falling below the baseline.

For example, the letters 'g', 'p', and 'y' have a descent unequal to 0.

The descent is measured in pixels, thus the font metric is device dependent.

Leading
short Leading;
Description
specifies the vertical space between lines of this font; it is also called internal linespacing.

The leading is measured in pixels, thus the font metric is device dependent.

Slant

The slant is measured in degrees from 0 to 359.
