vertical space

font without spacing for ascendents and descendents



I am looking for a sans serif font without spacing for ascendents and descendents. I tried all caps fonts but the ones I found still have some vertical space.

I will be using this font for its digits (so it could be a digit-only font) which will need to be readable (similar to, say, Droid Sans). they will be large and I do not want them to take more vertical space than needed. The problem I am having is visible on this screenshot: -- there is space wasted above and below the numbers.

Would you have a recommendation for such a "tightly fit" font?

Thank you for any suggestions,
