I would lika some like this:
echo "Hi" (this in normal size)
echo "I'm David" (this with wide font)

If that works in your terminal, this code will work in bash, ksh or any POSIX shell:

Code:
F_VDOBLE="\033#6"
printf "${F_VDOBLE}Esto es...\n"

If you used standard commands instead of one shell's peculiarities, you wouldn't have to ask.

Many thanks, I do with print instead printf.

Thanks a lot! Smilie

Sorry. I try today the command but I've saw that this command only puts the first line with wide font, the next lines have normal font Smilie

Any help?

Many thanks
