Working for maps in books, dungeon crawl style



In ianuary 2015 i was talking about implementing a map system in a book that you read ingame. Adding lines as numbers in such, like ---- in Quake2\roarke\texts\books.txt didn't work. The game just see them as blank spaces."Ledger of Commands" from the ingame screenshot is just a example, "Index 0" was modified and didn"t worked.
I was thinking that a dungeon crawler thing will work. I think that letters work, but i'm gonna test this (letter stack on top of each other, like below). I like in Dawn of Darkness to keep simple, if it is working.
