Your are using a monofont as a bmpfont. In a bmpfont you don't need the purple lines above the characters. But if you are loading this as a monofont it has to be complete, see the readme.txt in the monofonts download.
Loadbmpfont on the other hand works like this:
loadbmpfont (filename, lines, rows, fontface)
