The base line in handwriting refers to the supporting visible or invisible line on which most of the characters do rest. In Western handwriting , a number of characters contain descenders, i.e., strokes ending well below the base line. Examples are gjyp. Some allographs of z and f also descend below the base line. The other letters and all upper-case letters usually rest on the base line.
