It would be very welcome to provide bitmap font support within jEdit ad there are MANY bitmap fonts that are appropriate for programming (PCF fonts under Linux and FON fonts under Windows).
For example I would love to be able to use the Smoothansi font (from the Artwiz font package at http://artwizaleczapka.sourceforge.net/\) within jEdit. It this a shortcoming of the JVM? If so can it be dealt with?
Thanks, and keep up the great work!
P.S.: I work on Ubuntu Linux usually and sometimes (rarely) on Windows. The Artwiz fonts were (until recently) available only for Linux (PCF format). Now there's also a Windows version at http://xoblite.net/files/bbfontpack_windows_20030829.zip (although for some reason without the Smoothansi font). I attached a modified version of the Smoothansi font to properly display bold characters.
