Also, have you tried using the CHAR DESIGNER tool ?

Graphically, the screen you see holds 20x16 blocks of graphics... each text you use is technically a graphic...

The CHAR DESIGNER lets you create your own blocks of graphics... each block is 8x8 pixels (tiny dots) in size, and each pixel can be clear, or one of 3 colors...

Try this fun little program....

KEYBOARD ON
DO
PRINT INKEY$;
WAIT VBL
LOOP

Now, run it, and keep typing until the whole screen is filled up
Now, count how many letters across. How many letters up/down ?
This is how ALL graphic blocks are placed on the screen... CHAR DESIGNER lets you create and draw your OWN graphics :)
