in my question in my ell.stackexchange account, I want that look like user$20445$ instead of user20445.

How can I do this? I am not comfortable with these inappropriate numbers.enter image description here

  • $\begingroup$ I wonder if Unicode has different types of numerals... user➀➄➁➄➈ I did find this. But note: if you use some special way to write your username (such as MathJax), then we cannot talk to you by clicking on it or copying it... The result user$20445$ does not refer to you, user20445 . $\endgroup$ – GEdgar Mar 15 '20 at 13:25
  • $\begingroup$ @GEdgar you see 15259? How? $\endgroup$ – aminabzz Mar 15 '20 at 14:56
  • $\begingroup$ 15259 was just a sample, using those numerals in circles. $\endgroup$ – GEdgar Mar 15 '20 at 16:06
  • $\begingroup$ Because you seem to be asking about how to change the appearance of your(?) username on StackExchange sites other than this one, I've vote to close as off-topic. That said, the Question does not seem to state a clear issue about which one might get support. $\endgroup$ – hardmath Mar 17 '20 at 1:55

The numbers are not inappropriate. This is a standard font. You can change the font on your side, if you want to. Of course basically everybody else will still see it differently. Some instructions are here How to change all fonts on Stack Exchange sites?

You should not use MathJax here for writing these numbers either. That is inappropriate. You should use MathJax only for Mathematics.
