comment Good bitmap fonts with big sizes and unicode support
FON can use more than 255 chars for sure (at least Terminus is one example, ~880 chars, and it also has BDF files). About bitmap-only .ttf: I select (faked) MS bitmap only.., then I get the warning ..font contains no glyphs wiht unicode encoding, then I get a ~75kb .ttf which can't be open/used by the OS, but the font extensio tool says Ttyp0 Medium contains 2936 glyphs and no standard kern pairs. This font includes embedded bitmaps.

comment Good bitmap fonts with big sizes and unicode support
Unfortunately, it can't produce a valid result. bdf2fon is composed of 2 apps: bdf2fnt and fnt2fon. When running bdf2fnt it stops with the error can't parse line ENCODING 256. It seems everything is limited to 255 chars. Something similar I get from FontForge when performing Generate fonts: a small 5kb .fon file as output with only 255 chars. Any ideas how to bypass this 255 limit? or maybe even better if a specification of the FON format could be found and I'll be able to write an app for this purpose.

You font is really beautiful and useful, thanks for your work and sharing. Related to your statement about if you need .fon: could you provide some hints how to convert your font to .fon, please? (and name some tools, both win and nix are good). TYIA.

comment Does a modern PC require a graphics card to run?
Thanks, but your answer is too general and unfortunately it's not appropiate for my country (hardware suppliers are just speculators, returnig is a pain, etc.). I still hope for a more specifict answer, better with some examples of manufacturers/MB series/MB models. Anyway, I understand that the question itself has also a general meaning and if nothing better appears, I'll accept this answer.

@Marco: no, I did not try yet; I want to buy a MB, that's why I'm asking ... if a graphics card is not mandatory, I could look at those no-IG motherboards, buy one, then borrow a GPU for a few hours and save 50-60$ at leat for the moment (I'm not from USA or another rich country, so 50$ makes the difference)
