I just found a way to easily get basic grayscale on the homescreen.
This could be used for sprites or cursors:

Code:
ClrHome
2->A
2->B
Repeat K=45
Repeat Ans
Output(A,B,"X  /first frame character
A->K
Output(A,B,"H  /second frame character
getKey->K
End
Output(A,B," " /one space
B+(Ans=26 and B<16)-(Ans=24 and B>1->B
A+(K=34 and A<8)-(K=25 and A>1->A
End

Try changing the first and second frame characters to get different sprites.

Jutt posted a map of the possible ways to combine two characters, with unshared pixels made brighter.

Oh.
I had a feeling it had already been done. :)

The map remind's me of this one:

I just noticed that there are differences between the two tables, so be on the lookout when using these:

[font="verdana"]т . 7 S V Y \ m σ


...as well as the [font="arial"]$ and [font="verdana"]ß characters that I failed to include.
