To see text (from file or TTY) displayed in one font on Datadisk, RU ZEOYS[MAP,RF].

To get a hardcopy of samples of all the fonts on [XGP,SYS], R SAMPLE, warning
this uses a lot of paper and is not usually necessary because several people
already have hardcopy font directories in their office bookshelves which you may
refer to whenever you want (ask around). Also, this ties up the XGP for a
long time and should not be done during the day!!
To compile a font, RUN UFC[XGP,SYS]. UFC.REG[UP,DOC] explains what it compiling
a font means, and why it's good for you.
Some of the above programs append the ".FNT[XGP,SYS]" if you leave it out, but all
of them (I think) will accept the complete file name if you type it all.
