Lower Case, Punctuation Patch

Subject:	old Name Entry patch, revisited

Back in 20h and 21eK, i provided a patch which allowed the use of the
(nearly) full ascii character set in keypad entry of Names for user
bodies (instead of the current limit of UPPERCASE and numerals).  The
following patch is for v22eT, and allows lowercase and quite a few
punctuation symbols. At the penalty of having to scroll through all of
those characters when you're entering a name.

This is for 22eT, and can be applied to either a plain (unpatched)
build.rom, or to one which has already been converted to  22tT. The
checksum correction is embedded in this patch, and does not affect the
main checksum.

P.S.  "2.2tT" is a previously patched Autostar ROM.
