Subject: Re: Sub/superscripts with GRAFTRAX+ on MX-80
The character sequences for GRAFTRAX+ are as follows:
"<ESC> S 0" => sets superscript mode
"<ESC> S 1" => sets subscript mode
The setting of the scripts requires the 3 character sequence although super-
script takes a binary zero to be set, any number greater than zero will set
The real problem comes when turning off one of the scripts as you will see.
"<ESC> T" => Resets supercript, subscript, and unidirectional
printing. Does not turn off double strike).
NOTE: The setting of the script modes also set double
strike on and unidirectional printing on.
"<ESC> H" => Turns off double strike mode, superscript and sub-
script mode. Leaves unidirectional printing on.
These script modes are VERY impressive as far as readability. You can also
set compressed mode, italics mode, prior to scripting. One thing to watch
out for is that the using of emphasized mode cannot be mixed with the script
modes. There are some patchs available through some of the RCPM's that enable
you to "Patch" wordstar to ease the setting of these modes since the Scipt
patch area in Wordstar does not do the right thing.
If you need more information reply to this with an address and I will send
the Graftrx+ function sheet that contains all of the escape sequences.
