A monospace font that mimicks the OSDs of yore. Some glyphs have been taken from datasheets for old character generator integrated circuits, most notably the ST Microelectronics STV5730 and the Fujitsu MB90097, and others have been modified or created from scratch.

Special characters:
¤ (U+00A4) = Clock/Loading symbol
§ (U+00A7) = Satellite
› (U+203A) = Play/Right arrow
‹ (U+2039) = Left Arrow
· (U+00B7) = Pause
¯ (U+00AF) = Stop
• (U+2022) = Record
¨ (U+00A8) = Eject
º (U+00BA) = SP Tape Speed
ª (U+00AA) = LP Tape Speed
∕  (U+2215) = EP Tape Speed

Pixel-perfect point-sizes are multiples of 15 (30, 45, 60, etc.)

To do:
- £, ð, þ, €, ♪
- Cyrillic Alphabet

It's still a work-in-progress, and it's [m]y first time using FontStruct, so any criticism is welcome and appreciated.

@ParadigmTheGreat - Very nice recreation.  I hope to see the solid left & right arrows that you have in your second sample picture in a future update of your work-in-progress.   :^)
