Fonts

Fonts are encoded by their full name (using ASCII Codes), followed by a byte with the screen font number. Before the name, a byte encodes the length of the name plus one (a complete font is a BListB). So an theoretical font called New displayed with screen font code 80 would be encoded as 04 4E 65 57 80.

Fonts are specific to your printer choice. But printer fonts can't be displayed directly on your screen. Instead, each printer font is mapped to a screen font. These are numbered as follows:.

 Code Usual name   Comments

00 Swiss Only found in bullet desciptions? May be the same as 02.
01 Arial Proportional sans serif font
02 Courier New Non-proportional font
03 Times New Roman Proportional serifed font
