Re: Re: VMs: Thoughts about Roman numbers in the VMS
Ken wanted to post his table on some site so I volunteered. For convenience, he provided me with some modified font so I can create his table and make a picture copy of it. The font was used for internal convenience only and was NOT passed or provided to anybody. I admit I could have made a hand-made copy of the whole table, but I thought that no harm was done.
