One of the Spectrum's many useful features is the ability to relocate the character set in RAM. If you have the time and the patience, plus the knowhow, you can create your own character set for use in your programs.

With Typeset, all you need is a few minutes, and you could load all, or any, of the 12 character sets provided.

You will have no trouble loading either side of the tape, but first, though, you must load side one. This is not just because there are demonstrations of the character sets on it, but because the programmer has a delightfully impish sense of humour. Included on side one are instructions are using the 50 characters per line character set, along with a demonstration screen.

Side two holds the 12 character sets, and the instructions are easy to follow. The inlay card gives full instructions, and explanations, so you can't go wrong. Although I cannot vouch for their authenticity, Greek and Hebrew are included.

A very useful, well-presented utility. I can certainly find a use for it, and I look forward to seeing anything from this stable.
