Sorry, not an answer to your question, ...

I'm curious ... what kind of a screen do you have that would
be able to display ANYTHING sensible using that kind of font?

It is for an embedded application with a 5 inch LCD display.

Most screens with have their current values in the 180 point font to be viewable from a distance.

Heh ... Ok, and sorry, I don't know of download locations for fonts
that size, but you maybe able to use something like font forge to
resize the font to your own needs?



Cheers,
Tink
