This is a monospaced web font capable font that is
designed to be used in the context of ASCII art.
Every character in ASCII that is not alphanumeric, is
designed to avoid discontinuities. E.g. "-" will look like a
continuous line when typed like "-------"
This font has no spacing between
Essentially like semi-graphic fonts for drawing boxes, but
for ASCII art. Helps ASCII art look better.
Will try to make this in a few weeks time.
edit: Too bloody annoying to make this font. Even in
bitmap. Image in link for those who want to bother
giving it a shot.
Where the special font is essentially remaps the "#" as
solid black block, and "_" as solid black
Oh btw did you know you can type the break tag in half
bakery for newline <b`r> (remove ` )

Commodore PETSCII art page
Lots of PETSCII examples here to look at. [zen_tom, Oct 29 2014]
OK, straight to the bottom of the barrel, downloadable program (you'll need a C64 emulator to run it) featuring 80's style computer porn, implemented in the ROM-supplied character-set. [zen_tom, Oct 29 2014]
The image at the bottom of the page is built using a charset designed (by me) to generate graphics. Back in the 80's nearly all graphics were implemented like this. [zen_tom, Oct 29 2014]
C64 Truetype Font
This is an implementation of the PETSCII font in TrueType. [zen_tom, Oct 29 2014]
Quick and dirty font for those who want to give it a shot
Not as easy as you think.... to make a true type font [mofosyne, Nov 17 2014]

||Baked in the 1970's by a number of early 8-bit machines like the
Apple II and the Commodore PET.
||What did the apple II and commodore PET font look like? And
how well does it work with ASCII arts (if we remove spacing
||8 x 8 block fonts, no spacing or descenders. But on the Apple, the HRCG is held in RAM so you can make it do anything you like...
||Simplier solution here ahoy!
CSS for nicer looking ascii art in reddit
font-family:"Lucida Console", Monaco, monospace;
text-shadow: 0 0 5px rgba(0,0,0,0.5);
||Is there a way to use that in the halfbakery?
||Only if firstname.lastname@example.org decided to place it in the
site's CSS, and allow for a `<code>` tag or something like
||If she allows for it, I would recommend that we have
`<code class="ascii-art">` specifically for ascii art. This is
since this method will make normal text harder to read
(since it pushes characters together)
||I haven't emailed her yet. But do give it a shot. Might
work. And should still be in the "half bakery" spirit.
||//use that in the halfbakery ?// We've probably covered it before: you could check the internal categories.
||Why do you have two accounts?
||Switched name to this one. Not sure why I am still logged
as the old account, maybe it was because I posted from a
different browser and forgot to log that out. (Would have
thought it would be deleted by now.) But anyway,
you see that name, just mentally switch it to my new

different kinds of CSS you can do for ascii-art
