Thank you Ethan for this excellent explanation. Now my question is: how
do you know what characters are in the ROM and how to address them? I
have a picoLCD 20x4 and I can't find any info on how to set user
definable characters. It's not (yet) in the LCDproc documentation,
probably because the display is rather new.



P.S. The character I'd like to use is the degree sign: U+00B0 ? (c2 b0)
