vPhrase: The phrase which is to be rendered in big block letters. Function returns Null if vPhrase is Null or cannot be fixed up to a String.

Note: Function currently converts all lower-case characters to their upper case equivalents.

vFillChar: Character which is used to form each pixel of the block letters. vFillChar defaults to an asterisk character ("*") if it is missing, Null, cannot be fixed up to a String, or is an empty string.

Note: Function currently only supports the characters 0..9 and A..Z.

Note: Function cannot currently wrap the lines of text within the result string.
