I'm currently searching for the roots of that font that is visible during booting and in the BIOS, for example see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Phoenix_-_ … tup_Utility.jpg or http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Pc_boot.jpg.
I noticed that DOSBox uses the same font imho, so I guess the DOSBox team knows about it.
My questions are:
When did this font first appear, who created it?
Does it have a fancy name?
When I boot my computer, where is it loaded from? Is it placed in the video BIOS?
Why does it seem to always be the same font across all mainboards/BIOSes/graphics cards?
Thanks for your help. If I get good replies, I'll start a new Wikipedia article on this font 😁
