語義1 definition 1
The type's point size which is determined by measuring from the highest ascender to the lowest descender (plus any additional white space to the descender line).
 
Typography Terms - Proxima software
The height of the face of the type. Originally, this meant the height of the face of the metal block on which each individual letter was cast. In digital type, it is the height of its imaginary equivalent, the rectangle defining the space owned by a given letter (different from the dimension of the letter itself).

typoGRAPHIC
The height of the face of the type, which in letterpress terms is the depth of the body of the type. Originally, this was the height of the face of the metal block on which each individual letter was cast. In digital type, it is the height of its imaginary equivalent, the rectangle defining the space owned by a given letter, and not the dimension of the letter itself. Type sizes are usually given in points-but European type sizes are sometimes given in Didot points, which are 7% larger than the points used in Britain or North America.
 
Foam Train fonts
The size of a typeface character. Includes ascenders and descenders as well as a certain amount of space above the character.
 
Linotype Support - Font Glossary
Originally, the piece of metal type that carries the letter, including the space below it called the beard. Thus, for 10-point type it is the body that measures 10 points; the letter size, measured from top of ascender to bottom of descender, is somewhat smaller, depending on the typeface. In most systems of machine setting (both metal and photographic), the size of the body includes the space added below the letter (leading) and is usually measured in points and half points. For example, 9½-point type with 3points of leading (referred to as 9½ on 13) would be on a 13-point body, that is, having a body size of 13 points.

In graphic terms, The height of the face of the type, which in letterpress terms is the depth of the body of the type. Originally, this was the height of the face of the metal block on which each individual letter was cast. In digital type, it is the height of its imaginary equivalent, the rectangle defining the space owned by a given letter, and not the dimension of the letter itself. Body sizes are usually given in points-but European type sizes are often given in Didot points, which are 7% larger than the points used in Britain or North America.
