comment Is there a way to manually set the height of a bracket?
I must be missing something very basic. When I include the above definition in my .sty file changing nothing but the name, and the number 9 instead of 8.5 I get a bracket that is exactly the same size as that produced by \big(.

comment Is there a way to manually set the height of a bracket?
My apologies, but my knowledge of plain TeX is very limited. How would I have to change the above definition to use a previously defined length like \baselineskip in place of the 8.5?

comment What is the height above the baseline to the middle of an open bracket?
I appreciate getting both the plain TeX and pure LaTeX in the answer.

I think I will stick with just CTAN for now. Thanks for all the above answers/comments. Since the question has effectively been answered in the comments is there some way of marking it as answered despite the lack of a formal "answer"?

comment My newcommand does not work within other environments (align*)
One not so elegant way to solve the problem that does not rely on pure TeX, is to measure the width of \usebox{\Fconsequent} and \usebox{\Fantecedent} separately using \settowidth{}{} and then placing both lengths as vertical struts into a \makebox{} the height of which is determined by it's contents and can be measured with \settoheight{}{}...
