first of all, thank for answering. The combination Äg produces the longest length? Or are there other combinations that produce the longest one?

thanks for introducing vphantom that I haven't known before. It will be sophisticated if on the fly we can make a query against the letters to find the heighest letter and the deepest letter. And finally construct a strut using \vphantom and the 2 letters obtained by the query.

Is it possible to redefine the \strut to be as short as possible based on the current font size?

comment How to make a LTXexample-like environment by using the package listings.sty only?
@Herbert, I need more flexible way to put code region and formatted region. For example, I want the code part in the left cell and the formatted part in the right cell of a tabular row. There are many formations I want to make that is difficult to obtain using LTXexample.
