Oh, I see. I wonder what sort of attribute that represents. Perhaps how quickly the character bounces back after being struck?

If I can make a quick recommendation: Use "Att." and "Def." as abbreviations for "Attck" and "Dfens," respectively. It might look a lot neater.

For "H/L" and "H/L," I would just recomment "Left" and "Right." A lot of games will do this, so it's fairly recognizable that this implies the game is referring to the characters' hands.

As for this...

... Maybe change "ACCUR" to "Hit," "AGLTY" to "Agi" and "LIFE" to "HP." I'm not sure what "RECUR" represents.

I really like everything else, though. It's all very neatly done.

I was taught to double-space in highschool; but then the standard abruptly changed. I've found that using a single space is less of an eyesore.

There are worse atrocities in grammar: Misuse of capitalization in titles, improper usage of relative pronouns, the fact that prepositions are widely neglected in favor of shorter clauses, punctuation appearing after parenthesis...

What disturbs me more than anything else in the world is when someone implies that I am not a person. "Did you just see the crazy guy that punched that clown?!" Excuse me? The proper relative pronoun is who. By referring to me as a "that," you are implying that I am a gender-neutral object. How would you feel if I made the same inference about your mother? Hmm? "Who's that fat lady that just trampled my poodle?!" I don't think you'd like that very much.

Further, I feel like getting a little more than knife-happy when someone excludes prepositions from being lower-cased in titles. It's "Somewhere over the Rainbow" - not "Somewhere Over The Rainbow." *shudder* Somewhere, near a mausoleum in Westchester County, Judy Garland is tightly clasping a bottle of barbiturates and she grits her teeth and rolls around in anguish of your ignorance.
