Fonts in the ROM of IBM's Display Adapters
I am interested to know what is contained in IBM's display adapter's
ROMs. More specifically, IBM released 4 major display adapters that
were widely cloned, the MDA, the CGA, the EGA, and the VGA. Each
adapter has its own cell sizes in its text modes:
The EGA supports the text modes of CGA and MDA, the MCGA supports EGA,
CGA, and MDA, the VGA supports MCGA, EGA, CGA, and MDA. This means
that up to five fonts need to be stored in the VGA's BIOS ROM.
As for the first two cards, MDA and CGA, I have heard that they use
the same...Display font choices each in own font
Has anyone tried to code this? I have learned how to display a list of
fonts available from
http://www.lebans.com/enumfonts.htm. (thanks, Steve).
I presume that one could not show each individual font in its own font
as Word has done since 2000?

I found in my MCA repository a (seems to be) functionnal RS/6000 32bit
In my '80, I have a (what seems to be, again) original PS/2 SCSI
Adapter, w/o cache. I found also a w/cache, but is faulty.
May I get better performance, any improvement of any kind trying this
RS/6000 Adapter, or is it not going to run at all...or will it be worse ?
I have a 0661 type HDD, 320 MB in the SCSI Chain.
Hum, as I see after some searches, it is RS/6000-only adapter, no ADF,
not useable in a PS/2...Can someone confirm this ?

Well, I got a CD-ROM disk from an individual, who created ("burned") the
CD from her (workstation, I assume) computer from her business's
network. My current Warp 4, FP #15, DDK #2, Latest IDEDASD.EXE files
(OS2CDROM), updated CDFS.IFS, DANIS506, DANIATAPI.FLT etc., and can not
read the CD at all. And if the CD is in the IDE/ATAPI CD-ROM Drive as
OS/2 is booting, OS/2 is unable to boot-up.
I can read all other CDs that I have bought or received, including with
Long File Names (LFN).
My CONFIG.SYS file contains these pertinent lines:

I need to display some ClearType text in a static text field of a GUI window
using Java AWT. I heard that Java 2D itself currently does not support
ClearType sub-pixel technology. I am wondering if AWT can render font using
OS's global font setting, for instance, on Windows XP, the ClearType font
can be enabled globally, on Linux, it also has sub-pixel rendering
technology can can be enabled OS wide.
I am wondering if the Java AWT uses OS's font by default?
Furthermore, what shall I do if I want to capture the RGB pixel values of
the displayed text and save to harddisk?
