Well, for fun, let's change that:

	| font newForm size |
	font _ TextStyle default defaultFont.
	size _ 3.
	font alter: $. formBlock: [ :charForm | 
		newForm _ Form extent: (size + 2 max: 4)@charForm extent y.
		newForm fillBlack: (1@(font ascent - size) extent: size @ size).

You won't confuse this puppy with anything.
