Strings with overlapping characters

Hello,
Is it possible to have a negative space between the characters while concatenating a string? For example,
a1='a'
a2='b'
c=strcat(a1,a2)
ans
='ab'
But with negative spacing between the two strings, the characters 'a' and 'b' will overlap so that 'a' goes inside the circular part of b, instead of 'a' and 'b' getting placed side-by-side resulting in 'ab'.
Thanks.

No. Characters are code-points. Shapes of characters and spacing rules are presentation matters, usually listed as "font" information. This is similar to the fact that bold and underline and character colors are not part of unicode.
