40 column would be the limit for the OGO.

Remember that you have to display an 'm' - this must take up at least 5 pixels
(3 stems and 2 gaps) + another pixel to seperate it from the next char - i.e.
a character cell of 6 pixels. The OGO display is (IIRC) 240x240 so you can
only get 40 characters across in this minimum font.
