ASCII Art Font

A font which allows people to type large, complex pieces of ASCII Art

So, each character in this Truetype font would reproduce a grid of about 10x10 Courier characters. The alphabetic characters would map to letters (e.g. see link) - everything else would map to all the other things beloved of ASCII Art enthusiasts - Star Wars figures, etc.

In my font searches I've come across numerous graphics "fonts" - wingdings are one example, but there are much more elaborate "fonts", complex borders, tiles, etc. I'll see if I can find the link to my favorite site - fontcentral, or something like that - meanwhile, this site has some interesting specimens.
There area also links here to font editing programs... [Scott_D, Jan 08 2001, last modified Oct 21 2004]

       Where were people lining up to register for this typing class?

       I see now, what you are trying to achieve, a letter which corresponds to a matrix, or 2D array of a given character - sort of like the shareware Banner programs that used to ubiquitous in the days of the PC-AT and dot matrix printers.

       Surely it wouldn't be that hard to write a program that did this. Just very tedious, maybe...
