This is not a custom font, but rather a supplement to PICO8's default font!
I was always annoyed with the M and W in a 3x5 font. But, with the new P8SCII features, it's possible to move the cursor with command characters! Therefore, I made a function that replaces all instances of M and W, and replaces them with a 5-width version!

It also changes the I, makes thin punctuation have less whitespace, and changes some other symbols.

-Mostly, issues with P8SCII features! So I think it should work fine with games not using P8SCII
-If you use use both the default font and custom fonts, you have to be conscious of where this is used
-Doesn't work with solid text background, since characters cover each other up
-Doesn't work with wide mode because the w in \^w is converted
-Doesn't work with wide mode because it looks like width is slightly different? Like m becomes visibily nn
-If anything is dependent on the length of a string for visuals (like x = 3 * #"lala") It will mess with it
-I'm back-updating my games to use this and will update this with fixes as I come into issues
