ASCII Banner Generator

EVER wondered how quickly and trivially you could produce plain-text banners for a given word, name, or slogan? Using fixed-sized characters and common cross-platform fontsets, you can use an on-line tool to produce banners of choice. This obviates the need for manual and laborious composition or ‘off-the-shelf’ ASCII graphics (my long-standing favourite source). Below is some example output from the tool:


___ ___| |__ ___ ___| |_ _____ _(_) |_
/ __|/ __| '_ / _ / __| __/ _ / / / | __|_ /
__ (__| | | | __/__ || (_) V V /| | |_ / /
|___/___|_| |_|___||___/_____/ _/_/ |_|__/___|

The real issue is trying to fit the characters properly given fonts that are not the same as specified in the original site. This tool might be valuable, on occasions at least, for E-mail that is plain-text or even for UseNet/newsgroups.
