Ah well the images came from using the text tool to type into a 
macintosh paint program fixing those bits into a canvas of bits, then 
enlarged, and printed the canvas, but as we know it's a clone of an 
noncopyrightability bitmap font.

Re point 2) The fonts in the stable squeak image are derived from the 
Accufonts windows font files, which is only my understanding of what 
took place, based on the permission/license spoke to in my previous 
note, but the people who negotiated the agreement will need to 
confirm that.
