Subject: Re: Comma in nimbus-14 or xtal-14 font (Jim Legg)

If you have the convbdf.exe program, you can correct the missing comma
by modifying the problematic part in the two bdf-files with a standard
text editor in the following way:

STARTCHAR comma
ENCODING 44
SWIDTH 666 0
DWIDTH 4 0
BBX 2 4 1 -2
BITMAP
C0
C0
40
80
ENDCHAR
STARTCHAR hyphen
ENCODING 45
SWIDTH 666 0
DWIDTH 7 0
BBX 8 1 1 4
BITMAP
F8
ENDCHAR

Then run convbdf.exe on the modified files and store the resulting font files
in the .rockbox font folder.

Problems are:
xtal-14.bdf: hyphen definition is wrong (overwrites comma definition)
nimbus-14.bdf: comma definition missing

Hopefully one of the developers with CVS access will modify the fonts soon.
