Fixed width fonts

I’ve created some fonts using the Tiny Font tool (GUI).

I did this for two fixed width fonts[em] Courier New [/em]and [em]Lucida Console[/em], however the resulting fonts don’t appear to actually be fixed width.

That is the computed text extents for various test strings yields different values for (computed_extent / length_of_string).

The computed extent is found by calling font.ComputeExtent().

Am I missing something or is something odd going on here?

Also, whilst on this topic, I’ve noticed that when the Raptor boots, it displays a small message in a green font, like its in some basic text mode, is this true? Can I get the display to behave in this primitive mode? is that a fixed width mode?
