Thx for the various types of feedback received off-forum. Responding to these..

That you’d need to ask the designer of Oberon language. But since ORD(“pointer")
is also used in module System, it feels “safe” to also use it in modules like Fonts.

Thx. Replaced with RasterSize. PS: This also fixes the issue if the number of bytes
in a font happens to be >2300 and <2360 (not the case in an actual font, could be).
