:-) You may use smaller ones, that's the font designer's freedom. :-)

Ehem. I don't know. :-) The font renderer does the following: if not x1 or not y1 then: *. .. .. .. if not x2 and not x3 and x1 then: .* .. .. .. if not y2 and not y3 and (y4 or y5) then: .. *. .. .. if not y3 and not y4 and y5 then: .. .. *. .. Errrm, xN means that there is something that was drawn on the Nth vertical line level (thus there are x1, x2, x3). Same for yN but with horizontal line levels (y1..y5). The first one in words: - dot 1 (the left upper most one) is drawn if there is nothing on the first vert level or nothing on the first horiz level. and so on. I experimented a bit and the above code (but in C syntax) is now the Official Definition(tm)...
