 +===== Notes =====
 +  * All registers not shown above are not used on entry and are preserved on exit.
 +  * The registers A1 and A2 each either point to a font or are zero in which case the relevant default font is set.
 +  * Each font must be stored in memory in a particular way as shown below.
 +  * The value in D2.L is ignored by QDOS, but if it is "DEFF" in SMSQ/E then any font set by this call is used in subsequently opened channels.
 +  * If a character sent to a window is a valid character in the first font it is printed otherwise if it is a valid character in the second font that will be printed. If no valid character is found in either font the first character in the second font will be printed.
 +===== Font Format =====
 +|$00|Byte|1st valid character|
 +|$01|Byte|Number of valid characters|
 +|$02|9 bytes|1st character|
 +|$0B|9 bytes|2nd character|
 +Each character consists of a 5x9 array printed in a 6x10 rectangle and 
 +is stored in bits 6 to 2 in each byte of a set of 9 representing the printable rows from top to bottom. The top row in the 6x10 rectangle is blank.
