 I added the graphic characters from the low-res text screen of ECB to the 
/dd/sys/stdfonts file for NitrOS-9.

See page 292 of the Tandy Color Computer 3 Extended Basic manual.

They are accessible in a graphics window by typing ALT+a  to ALT+p or 
printing characters 193 - 208

Make sure to backup your /dd/sys/stdfonts file before replacing it with this 

The file in .dsk format can be found here:


By the way, the font editor I am using is quite nice. I've never used one 
before, but it seems well-programmed and is easy to use.
