I would like to use other than 8x8 space fonts for char.mt and char2.mt. What parts must change for this in kernel sources? where is the font table stored in memory? I want to change system fonts whenever I wish..

This is not an answer to your question, but speaking of fonts... I've modified char.mt for distinction for my own use. "W" and "w" really bothered me, they looked like Vs. I've changed some other things, too, including: Q M % * ; : , plus others I've forgotten.

Maybe this could be included in future releases?

I have done some searching in font.inc of newest release (079p1), when I modify the source for FONT.INC, CHAR and CHAR2.MT, I have garbage. It is getting better each time, I think it may be done soon. Then I shall post it.

Some changes that you've made have been done on one of the older "EZ" distros, but were never integrated into the official version.

Please slash or as we did put a double dot in the zero.

To distinguish easily while coding.

Would be interested in your changes.

Thanks, Mark

Are you referring to me, bloglite?

If you are, I don't understand what you mean. I put a slash through the zero. It was one of the first things I did and was done to make it more readable. Most of the other changes were simply to make them look nicer or because the were especially ugly (such as the star *).

Or are you asking that someone change the zero in the official distribution, if nothing else?
