Has anyone given any thought to updating the default 8x8 (kf_8x8.c)
font? One good reason to switch is that the lower case L "l" and the
pipe character "|" are identical. Before I updated my kernel, this
caused me quite a few problems.
I would suggest changing the default font to something like the
ubiquitous pearl.font/8. IMHO, Pearl 8 looks a lot better than the
current System font, and the "l" and "|" characters are distingishable.
Pearl.font has been around forever (I used ff to replace topaz.font
with it on KS 1.3...), and it has been included with my different
programs, so the copyright issue shouldn't be a problem.
