ATM type 1 font, looks like VGA screen characters. A real lifesaver--it includes the PC linedraw chars. Useful for including DOS screen snapshots in Windows documents.

I have used this font very successfully under Word for Windows 2.0 to
include DOS screen snapshots in my Word documents, something that can't
be done with most other fonts (because they don't map the PC special
characters, such as line-draw chars, to the right characters under
Windows).

The screen snapshots may not look right in WFW's Normal view; to get the
closest representation of what the final output will look like, use
Page Layout view and magnify the display to 200%.

You will probably need to reduce the line spacing below the default when
using this font. I set up a style that used a 10-point Video Terminal
Screen font with "Exact" line spacing at 9.4 points (use the Paragraph
Formatting dialog), and this gave nice-looking output.
