A bit of a double post, but this is a huge update! I created and added a font!

I'm cheating a little bit and only implementing the 25 characters I need:

[size=0px]sorry that the image says "  h  o  t  s  e  x  " that's entirely unintentional and a coincidence, and I don't have the time/can't be bothered to fix it. If someone takes offense to it I will change it on-the-spot.[/size]

I'm going for a loopy and twisted font that avoids straight lines and perfect circles. I love the way it turned out.  If I get the time, I might do the whole alphabet (I can do a character in like 30 seconds, it's not that hard with this style), and create a nice font for other assembly programmers to use and modify.

I think the lowercase "f" and the "9" are a bit too closed, and the 0 looks a bit like a theta, but besides that, it looks great. Each character has 1 pixel of spacing on both sides (it's not monospaced) and the space character is 4 pixels wide.

I'm doing some pretty awesome compression (each bit in the font data part of the program is one pixel, and it's all uncompressed when the program starts in a fraction of a second) that lets me save over 3500 bytes. My font-drawing routine is relatively fast and small, but I can probably get it smaller and faster with a little bit of coercing.
