We're getting off-topic for the FreeDOS lists - you can probably get
better help on the DOSEmu lists.

However, DOSEmu will use an X font resource.  Use 'xlsfonts | less' to
view what fonts are available to you.  I was able to edit my
dosemu.conf to specify a different font (even one that didn't support
the VGA extended characters - EDIT looks very weird that way.)  If you
can see the font in 'xlsfonts' then you should be able to reference it
just fine in your dosemu.conf file.
