Are there fonts available for the common Font Styles (DPC-B. DPC-B/C,
The fonts for the Dataproducts (64-char) drum printers may be in that set.
It's possible that the Dataproducts laser printers may have provided the
fonts, but googling
hasn't shown anything, the Dataproducts website is on archive.org
and my searches showed that the Computer History Museum has a printer
and a few bands.
The HP2614A Drum printer we had in 1980 was probably one of those and we

may be related to the IBM 1403 one too.
This assumes that fonts might be useful for OCR at some stage, or for
checking retyped data,
or for fun on SIMH.
