In Togo, the same character is used as a letter Ƒ/ƒ in the orthography of the Ewe language. If you plan to support that language the glyph must be a proper letter (proper ascender and descender, upright in upright, distinguishable from f in italic, etc.). What’s interesting is when one tries to support both cases, the letter and the currency symbol, what do you leave as the main glyph, how do you access the other(s)?

I think the descender is what made the florin attractive to hijackers, not so much the slant.

Perhaps the florin is used for f-stop because it harmonizes with the numbers better than a letter would. I honestly doubt many designers would learn the location of florin and begin using it accidentally.

I wonder if it works in passwords?

By the way, is there any math font where U+1D453 is not just the italic f with a different spacing? Of course, the letter u needs some special care to be different from nu, but I have never seen any recommendation about U+1D453.
