In-game text (ROM address 00F7DB-00FBD8) has prefix of two bytes and 0E, and is null-terminated. The first byte is the text position and character that speaks. The second byte is the color index for the text.

Example:

82 02 0E 72   6F 6C 6C 2C   20 66 6F 78  ....  6E 20 72 6F   6C 6C 2C 00
^^ \/    ^                                                            ^
||  |    |                                                            |

The text position nibble can be either 0 or 8. 0 vertically aligns the text with the middle of the character picture, and 8 aligns the text to its top.
