Thanks, Xiangfu, these fonts look quite good and are better than the 
4x6 fonts that can be enabled in the kernel.  I tried the 4x8 fonts 
with the ncurses demos and like many font sets, the line drawing 
characters are missing.  However, I have already figured out how to 
update the font using the Gimp.  I'll just adapt parts of other 
characters to get the basic set needed to draw boxes with single 
weight lines.  That's what is used most.  

I already added the missing characters to a 5x8 font in the psf 
format.  Perhaps when I get the 4x8 font updated and checked, it could 
be added to the collection for the Nanonote.  Ill let you know when 
the revised font file is ready.
