Wow!  That's great!   :-)
I've just tested all the "standard" fonts (Fixed, Terminus,
TerminusBold, TerminusBoldVGA, VGA): they are all able to display
'toilet -f future' symbols in a strange, yet charming way!

I really like the result: I finally chose TerminusBoldVGA as my
favorite font.
Thank you very, very much for this console enhancement!   :-)

I tend to disagree: I now prefer TerminusBoldVGA!   ;-)

Actually, lat1u-16.psf.gz was a compromise solution for me, since it
was the only way I had to actually display 'toilet -f future' symbols
in a legible manner, but I wasn't really satisfied with the result...

Your "approximations" of 'toilet -f future' symbols with "standard"
fonts (especially with TerminusBoldVGA) really look futuristic and
great!   ;-)

Thank you again.
