Does anyone know if the console cli supports .psfu 512 character fonts with control codes SI and SO?

I'm at the point of doing a cross platform font idea for dev.

Amiga disk fonts are limited in their (stored) structures. According to the documentation it is bound by tf_loChar and tf_HiChar fields inside struct TextField.

Yep, I saw that in the docs. Is there any code page mechanism? Does SetFont clear the display? :(

Or just draw in the new font?  :)

Unlikely, you may extend the console.device yourself...
