	The Interactive systems update disc X6 contains fix to ttymap
	and loadload utility that loads stantard X11 bdf fonts into
	EGA and VGA character generator. The fontload also dumps font
	into bdf file, that can be edited. If you like to edit new characters
	there is in stantard X11 source distribution program called xfed.ncd
	that can be used to edit bdf fonts.
