Wrote out a couple of disks that looked promising (labeled "VP Helvetica
Fonts" and "VP Xerox Classic Fonts") and while it's possible that the
disks contain the right fonts for the 1186, they seem to be packaged
differently than Interlisp wants.
The 1186 docs refer to fonts on the floppy as being present in separate
files (one file per font, at different sizes & whatnot, apparently); the
VP font disks seem to have all fonts packaged into a single file (for
example "VP Helvetica Fonts" is the name of the single file on the
floppy of the same name. I'll have to do some digging to see if this is
a container format that Interlisp can crack.
Lots of other disks to look through but it's a pain to get them written
out; one of those HxC floppy drive emulators is looking rather nice
right now :).
