Part of this may have to do with the way font files are defined.
Originally, SHX files had ASCII 127 as the degree symbol, ASCII 128 as
the plus/minus symbol, and ASCII 129 as the diameter symbol. Then at
R12, there were additional definitions added in the font file as
I do know that having fonts with these characters defined and not
those as ASCII 127, ASCII 128, and ASCII 129, can cause some problems.
This is why the fonts appear correctly on the original drawing and
system, and were OK when the appropriate version of the font was
loaded on your system.
