Without examining your post in too much detail (have something urgent
that needs attention), I would first assume that it would be a RAM
address issue. I wrote some working code for the PIC18 in C18 - maybe
it would be of some use to you:
I agree with the suggestions mentioned so far, especially regarding
the timing. One other item: some LCDs are 4-bit only, even though
there are pins for 8 data bits on the PCB.

That's a good point, but you should be getting a garbled mess for
characters on the first row if it were set up for 4 bits but you were
treating it like an 8 bit display.

Yes, you're right. I actually thought of that, too, but only after I hit SEND :)

Are you sure the display is initialized for two lines? When I've had
initialization fail, the first line is dark and the second line is light.
After initialization, both lines are light. I think the chips come up in
single line mode.
Just a guess!
