At 8x12 pixels, Terminal is nicely compact and useful, but also kind of ugly. Instead, BigBlue Terminal is closely based on IBM's 8x14 EGA/VGA charset -- I just like it better. Basically, that font has been squeezed and modified to fit into a 8x12-pixel cell. For the extended 'Plus' version, many additional Unicode characters have been added to support international scripts and symbol sets.
The font comes in three variants,
- BigBlue TerminalPlus: TrueType font, multi-language Unicode character set
- BigBlue Terminal 437TT: TrueType font, codepage 437 (DOS/OEM-US)
- BigBlue Terminal 437BM: Windows bitmap font (.FON), codepage 437 (DOS/OEM-US)
