Standard DOS/video BIOS format.

For font editting, I used Michael J. Mefford's FONTEDIT
program (PC Magazine, Vol 7, No 15: Sep 13, 1988).  Many
BBS's carry PC Magazine source code and/or utilities.

FONTEDIT creates self-loading fonts, but the font data is contiguous
starting at byte 100.  I simply opened the resulting self-
loading font in binary mode, read 256 (characters) *
LinesPerCharacter (8 for this font) bytes, and wrote them
to the *.FNT file.  Simple and easy.

FONTEDIT is a very nice little program.
