Woops, sorry. Very large height.

Thanks for the detailed explanation! You were right, the height is fine if the 
character itself is inserted. The problem is due to prettify-symbols-mode.

Thanks for your work on this, it's very cool! This is a bug that had annoyed me 
4 or 5 years ago when I first used Emacs, but at that time I didn't really know 
how to report bugs.
