    I think it would also be great if you implemented a feature that allows you to send video from Windows Media Player into the program, so that it creates a video composed of text.

    Here’s the results of my experiments at a ramp:


    (in case that doesn’t highlight, it’s followed by 6 spaces)

    I think it produces interesting results at size 6 font? The goal was a grey scale using every key once, but I found the symbol keys were too obtrusive (aside from :.). And also, all the small caps with a second line in height or depth (ie. dbq). The whole thing probably needs fine tuning in both the occurence and possibly the ordering. Capitalizing the m’s or altering the sequence between capital and small caps m’s helps add detail to the darker areas. (I intended it for the Courier font, but it seems to work best on Lucida.)

    Anyway, here it is incase you can expand upon it.
