Example showing how to print the trademark symbol and have it concatenate to the previous ^FD using the ^FT and GS commands.
In this example a format template is downloaded. An Arial.ttf font was converted by ztools and downloaded to the printer.
^FN is used to print a variable which in this case is the trademark symbol.
The double byte hex value for the trademark symbol is 21 22.
Just prior to the ^FN command in the downloaded format a ^CI17 is issued to the printer to set it to interpret double byte field data.
As a result the printer prints Acme . The end of the print file contains a ^CI0 command to bring the printer back the its default encoding.
In the following examples a new ^CI27 command is used to set the printer to codepage 1252. (184.108.40.206A) (bitmapped fonts only) (U-L-D fonts)
Codepage 1252 actually contains the symbol (hex 99/ dec153)
In this example the first field is printed using codepage 850 (^CI13), and the second field is printed using codepage 1252 (CI27). A hex dump would show the value as hex 99.
In this example the second field prints the trademark symbol using the ^FH_ command and the hex value _99 entered in the field data.
