Just to bring a sort of closure to this thread: a friend of mine has a 
currently non-working 1186 with an installation of the Lyric release of 
Interlisp-D installed on the drive; I installed the hard drive in my 
1186 and copied the display fonts from it over to a floppy.  They appear 
to work perfectly on Medley, and all is right with the world.

I have made a disk image of the ad-hoc font disk I created, and just for 
convenience I've also extracted them from the disk image, here:

Maybe they'll be useful for someone else in the future...
