Under "Tools" there's an "Insert Dialog-script" option which I think is what I'm looking for, but I can't figure out how to use it. If I try to insert the start address of a pointer table, I get a message saying:

Saved script to offset 71A249(Hex).
Use this option in the 'Script' box of your Map-Editor in order to use the script.
Uhhh, my Map-Editor? What??? Help!
The best solution is to not use A-Text, but to simply write your own dialogue w/ XSE (that way there are no letter limitations). A basic dialogue script written in XSE would look like this:

#dynamic 0x800000
#org @start
msgbox @talk msg_face

#org @talk
= Your dialogue here.
XSE will automatically compile the script to any free space available after offset 0x800000 (in this case, b/c that's the dynamic offset we chose).
