oops, dynafont.

$ dpkg -s dynafont
Package: dynafont
Status: install ok installed
Priority: extra
Section: utils
Installed-Size: 142
Maintainer: Piotr Roszatycki <dexter@debian.org>
Source: fonty
Version: 1.0-8
Depends: libc6 (>= 2.1.2), libstdc++2.10, konwert
Recommends: console-tools (>= 1998.06.03)
Description: Module for konwert package which loads UTF-8 fonts dynamically.
 This is a tool which allows displaying texts containing thousands of different
 characters. It switches console to UTF8 mode and loads required fonts
 dynamically. It is recommended to use this tool with filterm(1) tool,
 i.e. by executing 'filterm - dynafont' command.
 The tool works with UTF8-compatible applications, i.e. lynx(1).
 There are problems with 8-bit only applications like mc(1).
