What does this "dynafont" filter do?

I think you can fix this if you set up a display table that maps each
special character to a string of one or more ASCII characters (or any
other characters your console can display).  You can find 2 examples
of doing that in the Emacs distribution:
lisp/international/latin1-disp.el and lisp/term/internal.el.  If you
need to understand more about display tables, read the section
"Display Tables" in the ELisp manual.

What is a ``virtual console''? how is it different from a standard
text terminal?
