Hi,

if you mean with "text mode" the pure
kernel alone. You can't.

Because you need the font metrics to print
a formated text and the kernel knows nothing
about font spacing. Only the FrontEnd read
such files an produce the output.

See whats happen when you just export a graphics
with some formated formula from a kernel session.

Regards
  Jens
