thank you so much for you kind offer. I am sure you'll agree with me when I tell you that the HP71B LCD itself is the best source of information. And yes, my friend: I was lucky enough having a very good soul that helped me having a complete unit (HPIL, reader, 2×4K RAM modules... a wonderful machine!). In fact, the basic unit was a "gift", and the "fancy", complete, cosmetically perfect unit was accomplished by trading (an HP42S). I'm a happy owner!
I printed the Owner's Manual available at the MoHPC CD set (I have a former 5CD set) and it's not gonna be hard to change/complete/alter the existing HP42S Character Set TTF, as I have briefly checked already.
There is another TTF I'm willing to draw: the HP75C/D. Mostly because of its natural, unique "italic" look. The only other "place" I've seen such an italic effect is in the HP9x printer: the characters are "italic" as well. I myself do not like them too much, but their "nostalgic" look makes us remember that those wonderful machines were top-of-line, state of the art devices at their time, and they still have their magic. What about that? I'm daring to "twist" a copy the existing HP42S character pattern and see what happens. Again, I'll let you know.
As I have the HP71B TTF I'm telling you.
Once again, thank you for your kind (and much appreciated) offer.
