This is a font for the Amiga that matches the C-64's text.  I made it by typing
this into a C-64 emulator, and then into a real C-64 to check it:

10 Y=1024
20 FOR X=0 TO 255
30 POKE Y,X
40 Y=Y+1
50 NEXT X
60 END
RUN

This font should match the look of the real C-64 exactly, except that there are
two spaces between lines instead of only one on the real C-64. I don't know how
to fix this, unfortunately. I added a few useful characters to this font as well
as the whole set of European accents (éüòñÂ, etc...) just to be nice to all my
fellow Amiga users across the sea.  You should test this font out in a paint
program in low-resolution and with a nice blue background.  In high-resolution
the C-64 font looks uncannily like the Topaz font.  Hmmm.....
