After purchasing the font myself, I noticed that there were only a couple
of "glitches" with the font as opposed to the actual PC font. As far as I
can tell, the lettering (A-Z) is dead-on. No alterations needed at all.
Mind you, only upper-case (capitals) is ever needed and you must change the
windows font option to bold and italic. As for the numbers, only the number
"1" has a problem. The Bitstrem font has the little flag at the top of the
number so it looks like the european version of the nuber "1". The PC font
is actually just a slanted line (/). It is an easy fix... just use the
capital letter "I" in place of the number "1" and you will have the complete
set of PC numbers 0-9. The only other glitch I found is with the ampersand
(&). It is hard to describe, but it is slightly "off". It is close enough
for me and really only concerns those who wish to model certain Peoria &
