      It shows all right. :) What do you think of making "font" really?
      #313 post of this list is actually posted by me, and discussing
      the program Figlet, which can be used to generate ascii arts for
      letters.

      And I made a ready txt file for all Cirth. What I don't know is
      how to make Figlet fonts. I hope there are some documentations,
      but I couldn't find any.

      By the way, Figlet 2.2 is written by John Cowan, the moderator
      of Elfling list! So I would ask him.

      Anybody dare to make 'a ready txt file for all Tengwar'? *grin*

          But such transcriptions are a bit too big :( (hopefully this one hasn't
          annoyed anybody)

            http://www.dcs.ed.ac.uk/misc/local/TolkLang/Vol8/8.81 Some of the
            letters and the tehtar are a bit difficult to read, though.

              here is my catalog of the ascii letters, font based on the 'font' of which BP johnson's signature (melroch) is shown

              (I am sure he must have made his own 'font', of which his signature is a mere sample.. if he has done so we would be grateful if he publish it here.. anyway I hope these letters are close to his 'fonts', and that I won't violate any personal copyrighting :))

              If it doesn't show well, copy and paste this ascii in an editor using fixed width fonts and disabling the 'wrapping'/'break lines' option

                    Hi all!

                    Dwn> The lines don't match up on my browser and are difficult to read.

                    If one want to use ASCII graphics in HTML letters, then he
                    must use either a <PRE> tag (better), or <FONT> tag with
                    fixed width font face (say, Courier), or <TEXTAREA> tag.

                    However, IMHO, it's best to do not use HTML format in
                    e-mail letters at all. Plain text is cool ;).

                    Regards,
                    Alexander.

                        Well, I might have done some details different from you, and I might still
                        do it some day, tho I'm afraid it will be in the first few months of next
                        year at the earliest.
