Variable Width Font

Variable width fonts are typeface fonts that employ a dynamic spacing system wherein the shape of the letters and other characters are considered when spacing the letters on the line. By this mechanism, a “B” takes up more room than an “I” and the letter “a” in the word “Tan” is nested slightly under the “T”.

In contrast to a variable width font, a monospaced font allots an equal space to all characters and the letter nesting seen in “Tan” does not occur.
