FS#11271 - 35-Nimbus font

This is a font I created for using in the FM radio screen. I contains only digits, the period and the default character that will be used to display all other letters. Ascent and descent are set to 0 so that there will be no vertical spacing.

Update: I added latin letters so that the font can be included into the font pack.

Now as diff

The commit was reverted and the task reopened because it was agreed on the mailing list and in IRC that we should only include a font in the standard font pack if it can at least display English menus. But this font contains only digits.

This is work in progress. I added capital latin letters. Volunteers are welcome to add small letters! Edit the .sfd file with fontforge.

I renamed the font to 29-Nimbus and added latin letters to it (small and capitals) and also some accented letters. I attach the BDF file as a diff and the original .sfd file (to be edited with fontforge) for possible further development.

Another rename: the real font height is 35. Added some accented capital letters.
