Standard Printer Fonts
 

Fonts A through V are Expandable up to 10 times, height and width independently. Fonts E and H, however are not considered "in-spec" (OCR-A and OCR-B) when expanded.
 

The scalable smooth font 0 is expandable on a dot-by-dot basis, height and width independent, while maintaining smooth edges. Maximum character size depends on available memory. IBM Code Page 850 international character sets are available in fonts A through G, and 0 through software control.
