Yes, it's linear. I've already gotten some links to learn
how to do the dbfs math. I'm working on that. I have to make
some conversion tables. It will be a user selectable option
to switch from linear to dbfs.

I consider that as problematic with loadable fonts. But what
I could do is put in some inverted vertical lines at magic
values. And a few new tags to read out the peak values as
numerical values

Yes, I could.
