Re: Glyph width vs advance width


the w can often be a little wider in glyph width than advance width, to avoid distasteful gaps with other vertical letters like in www

also many fonts for Indian scripts with a head line like Devanagari have a similar slightly extending headline

I have a query regarding the glyph's width and the glyph's advance width.

Can glyph width be greater than adnvance width?

And if yes, can you please explain one scenario when and why will it be required?

Thanks and regards
