Yeah, that latter is the one we're looking for (mostly). (I tried downloading
a couple of copies, but for some reason I don't understand the font viewer on
my Windoze box wouldn't show them; from what I could see online, it looked
close.) The DEC font uses a zero with a slash, but it's otherwise close.

Understood. Thanks!
