    Default Howto : modify a Font (Gylph) at runtime

    Is it possible to change just one character/glyph in a loaded font or derived font?
    Or create your own font, or can I use a supplied font instead of just those provided by system.

    Basically I want to change the divide symbol which is usually just a diagonal slash into a proper math symbol (horizontal line with dot above and below).

    Thanks.

    None that I know of. Even if possible, it's hardly likely to be doable in pure Java.

    There's already ÷ (\u00F7) so why reinvent the wheel?
