Breaking all the rules of a mail list, attached is a JPEG being a scan of
the graphics mode printout from StrongEd to myDell 2330dn black & white
laser printer.
It's got some serifs but not too intrusive. The zeros have little dots in
them to distinguish them from letter O. The capital M & W are too thick
as can appear in some mono fonts.

I'm not sure how I got this font. It wasn't in the Adjust 4.39 rom. The
attribution in the font file is..

Bitstream Vera Fonts   The Gnome Project

A free download can be had from...


But I have no memory of how I obtained mine for RiscOS.

Maybe it came with an app. Se extract of copyright below.
