Re: Re[4]: cvs patch for loadable fonts

: I pulled the X5x8.fnt font directly from the archive that was attached

: same thing still happens.

Hmm. This worries me a bit. The font must have loaded,
or it wouldn't be used, and would work with the built-in
font using the same output routines, which are working.
The font load happens before the logo is displayed,
_I think_. (the startup is different in the target than
simulator, I need to check this).

I suppose we should take this to the list, and see if others
have the same problem, which I suspect is going to be the
case. In particular, I'm interested in known what Daniel
saw on the target while he was applying the patch.
