Re: PC: font

On comparing (see http://web.ukonline.co.uk/roo/pcfonts.gif ) I'm inclined
to agree with Jerry that Square 721 BE is as close as we really need.  I had
previously used Microgramma Bold Extended, but I now think that this is a
touch too heavy.  Not by much as you can see by viewing the above, but

Only problem is the number 1 character is still not correct on either font.
Is this the same font, or should I be thinking about something else for
cabside numbers?

Regards, Gareth
