Changed the default MODE 7 font
to be more similar to RISC OS and Matrix Brandy.
This is the font I am now using for MODE 7. It's loosely based on the Bedstead-ext
font but, since that is a 12x20 bitmap stretched (with anti-aliasing) to 16x20, 'smooth' diagonals run at a different angle; this particularly affects characters like /
. I also think I've done a better job with some of the accented characters and ligatures than Bedstead does (admittedly theirs are limited by the underlying 12x20 matrix). Of course not all these characters are available in MODE 7, which uses only 7-bit addressing, but they are if the font is used in another mode via VDU 23,22...:
Characters 0-31, not shown, are two-letter symbols for the Videotex/Teletext control codes (e.g. AR for Alpha Red).
