AL = character
Notes:  for monochrome displays, a foreground of 1 with background 0 is
underlined
the blink bit may be reprogrammed to enable intense background colors
using AX=1003h or by programming the CRT controller
the foreground intensity bit (3) can be programmed to switch between
character sets A and B on EGA and VGA cards, thus enabling 512
simultaneous characters on screen.  In this case the bit's usual
function (intensity) is regularly turned off.
