How can we post ASCII art on Facebook wall?
In my app, I have a requirement to post the ASCII art from my iPhone app onto the facebook wall post. But the problem I face is that facebook font (Lucida Console) Changes the formatting of my ASCII art. I have made my ASCII art in Courier New.
What can be done?
Is there a way I can post my ASCII art on facebook without having to re-format the whole thing?
Please Help and Suggest.
Courier is a monospaced font. That means, that every letter has the same space. Thats why it is easy to use for ASCII art and popular for coding — as words in with same lentgh will always be at same positions.
from facebook css:
font-family: 'lucida grande', tahoma, verdana, arial, sans-serif;
edit Have a look at this facebook group. The users compensate the absence of a monospaced font by
- using just symbols with roughly the same width
- filling room with short symbols like .
