I had a bit of difficulty trying to copy this from a standard printout using my ImageWriter II's without manipulation.  Each character in the ImageWriter II's "Near Letter Quality" (NLQ) mode jammed a 16x14 character into what would normally be an 7x7 template.

I wound up figuring out that the ImageWriter printed each character's odd-numbered pixel rows before printing out the even-numbered pixel rows.  Ultimately, I caught a rather (un)lucky break after the printer would mess up after the odd-numbered pixel row printout.  This worked out because I was able to separate the alternating rows, then I spliced them back together.

Getting back to the font's attributes, ImgWriter NLQ, much like my previous ImgWriter entries, features characters that were not a part of the original design -- accented capital letters, the "fi" and "fl" ligatures, the yen and Euro symbols, fractions, et. al.  The only character in this font that is not monospaced is the ellipses (or "dot-dot-dot");  this was made to be a double-spaced character to cut down on the white space between periods.

Enjoy!

2014.04.15:  Small update includes combining diacritic marks; this was done to circumvent a bug in some Mac programs where the accented characters wouldn't appear correctly after typing in Option+N then N, for example.
