Re: PC: PC Lettering Style

   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 & 
Eastern equipment.
