    Here's a port of Scott Edwards' BigNums to PBP. Originally for the Basic Stamp.

    That's just a standard 4x20 LCD, half a dozen 'special characters', angled block types, half filled block, filled block, etc..etc.. It's all in how you put it on the screen.
    If you forgo the 'special characters', you could do the same thing with an 'X' in each position to ultimately make a LARGE font... No special programming required, just a little bit of thought...

    Have you considered using a graphic LCD instead?
