font with subscript characters

Tags:
Development
I'm a programmer, using a legacy ISAM database programming language - Alpha 5. I need to find a font that has the subscript characters for 2 and 3. Or a way to add the characters to an existing font. Any ideas?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

It is possible to change the bitmaps in a font or find a font with these characters. But first, what kind of printer are you going to use? Please provide more details, and check with your printer vendor. They will have specifications for the fonts you need to use.

    Wow! Talk about a blast from the past! I remember working with Alpha III and Alpha 4 back in the eighties. I built a contact management system in 4, but I never upgraded to 5 (switched to dBase). Is 5 a fully Windows compliant version? I can't remember, but I know 4 wasn't; it ran in a DOS box. If 5 is still a DOS app, your question is MUCH harder to answer. Even if it is a Windows app, it MIGHT depend on the app, as to whether or not it can display subscripts. (It's been ages since I had to worry about fonts. My memory of the details is kind of fuzzy.)
