MS-DOS line drawing font in Lout?

     I am attempting to convert a manual for a DOS program
into Lout 3.08 running under Linux.  The manual had been
done previously in WordPerfect 5.1 for DOS.  The text is
coming over ok but I need to embed screen images of the DOS
program.  This is a text mode program for which I need to
display the box drawing characters such as lines, double
lines, and the associated corners.  I have captured these
screens into a file.

     Is there a font for Lout that matches the DOS extended
character set (or whatever it is called)?  For example, the
decimal code 201 represents the upper left corner for a
double line box.  (I could easily translate the particular
codes to any other values if that would help.)

     In the 3.08 user's manual there was a mention of some
non-Latin1 fonts available at


but I haven't been able to connect to that site to look
(and I'm not sure what I would look _for_).  However, I
did try the mirrors listed on the Lout home page


and didn't see anything that looked related.

     Any ideas on how I might print out these DOS
screen images with Lout?
