Re: A small addition to dvidoc, txt, or crudetype

This is a great idea.  I have often needed such output when
better printers have broken down.

Since Courier has been released for general use through the
X consortium, why not use Courier.  It is perhaps
the single most successful monospaced design available
to day.  The glyphs can be supplied as bitmaps. They don't have to
be in Type 1 format.  ps2pk will do a neat job of making
a sort of general bitmap  (not fitted to any specific printer,
but that doesn't matter too much with Courier).

If you want some Courier.???pk files, let me know.  I have
ps2pk pretty well tamed now.
