I was having trouble printing the OEM extended character set (alpha, beta gamma..., line graphics, etc.) until Ted Green came up with the solution. The font he refers to has been posted in the Share as LINEDRAW.TTF. Here's our email exchange. Ted's reply follows my quoted question:

You need to use a printer font with the OEM character set. The
"MS Line draw" is one such (rare) font and is attached. It must be
installed using Control-Panel - Fonts.

Personally, I typically use the "VEDIT OEM" font for display and
the "MS Linedraw" font for printing. They correspond quite well.
