The basic answer is there is no recommendation because the alignment is the responsibility of the programmer's code and not the font. Mono- spaced fonts like Monaco and Courier do work better on the screen. > In Microsoft BASIC one could create a printing image for strings > and numbers: PrtintImage$="\ \ ##.## $##.## > \ \". The backslashes are for strings. Don't know MS BASIC, so I don't know what that is paid to do. Therefore, it is hard to know what you asking.

Whatever you can PRINT to a window can just as easily be PRINTed to a printer. Also, it is possible to just print everything to a window and let the user decide to print the entire window. Are you talking about printing line by line? Let the list know with more detail what you are trying to do. Printing can be done any number of ways and the one thing I can guarantee: Strings can be printed easily. What I THINK you are describing is FORMATTING the string but I don't want to propose a solution that isn't what you need. Brian S.
