    Am I alone thinking this looks like a font issue?

    That is, it looks like to me an use of all-capital font, where of course ▀
    will be rendered along with the other characters, with the same height
    (ascent, descent) as p, f, e...

    Also, I have seen fonts with upper-case sized ▀, different (slightly
    smaller) from the lower-case sized one; yet this fonts also had small caps
    of still another height, and I believe nobody will make a case to introduce
    just another set of Latin letters to support small caps (the differing
    height ▀ was probably there to support proper display of full caps.)

    This is not to say that upper case ▀ might exist, this I am not qualified to
