 PlayFONT
     This initial version of the PlayFont is purely for quickly converting windows bitmap (2bit) and windows true type fonts (8bit) into PlayBasic CRF (Compressed Raster Font) format. The user simply selects a windows font, then it auto converts it into CRF, and shows it in the main display window. You can change the display message by entering your own message in the input box at the bottom. Just so you can check particular characters. At the moment the tool has no low level editing (ie. individual chr widths ) so there's not too much to it.
