Let me ask a question about the following sentences from a novel.
Centered on the light table to his left was a clean sheet of white paper
Hitting a key, he enlarged the area he wanted to work on, then
began painting it with shades of grey. I sat very still while shapes
began to slowly materilize out of a literary limbo, curves here, dots there,
and t's boldly crossed.
(P. Cornwell - Cruel and Unusual)
context: He's a finger-prints examiner, at this moment trying to make out letters from
indentations left on a sheet of paper through computorized image enhancement.
question: about "t's boldly crossed"
How's it shaped?
I've drawn an image like follows:
My image is: a letter of "t" crossed with a clear line or bar
