o The loadfont seems to crash on target at times, I09:CPUAdrEr at 09010394
was reported. And when it doesn't crash, the font comes up garbled.
o The 'bdf2fnt' doesn't handle font names that start with a digit(!!!)
o The bdf2fnt barfs out on multiple fonts, one example being the pixelette
o I ran the helvR08.bdf font (http://rockbox.haxx.se/fonts/) through the
converter with only 255 letters and it came out fine. I just think that it
seems to make the letters too heigh. I would assume I could get at least 8
lines of text, but now I get 6. Am I just stupid, or does anyone have a 8
pixels high prop font to try out?
o http://rockbox.haxx.se/fonts/ is the start of our "font collection" page
on the site.
