Bitmap fonts

Recommended Posts

I'm having some trouble with this bitmap font code I copied from NeHe:
void PutText(int x, int y, const char* text, ColourData* colour)
{
	glLoadIdentity();
	glTranslated(x,y,0);
	glColor4ub(colour->r,colour->g,colour->b,colour->a);
	glPushAttrib(GL_LIST_BIT);
	glListBase(BaseFont - 32);
	glCallLists(strlen(text), GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE, text);
	glPopAttrib();
}
It renders text, but for some reason, when I call it as: PutText(10,10,"Test",&NormalColour); It starts from the bottom left hand corner (It's inside a glEnable2D which reverses the axes, so that's wrong), and then flies horizontally across the screen. I'm not incrementing anything... any idea why it's not working?
