Just to satisfy my curiosity, how come codepage:oem can find the right
characters when you're in a Windows console but not when you're in an rxvt
window? Is it Windows' fault?
I don't really use rxvt but I'd like to cover the issue in the
cygwin-specific readme for tetrix...

But you don't mind 'distributing' them in a publically archived mailing
list? Brave man :-O
Would you object to that link being mentioned in the above-mentioned
Someone once told me you can't copyright a font (under US law at least)

but I always suspected it was BS and of course IANAL.
