 Please read the notes for 'FONT' in section 7.10.  You are using the
font mentioned in that example, so I assume you _will_ need the
"-m 8859-1".  Also, perhaps, the LEGACY_CHARSET variable - the
8859-15 example shows how to use it, but I guess the 8859-1 variant
(at least for dk-latin1) might be better.

das eine Mal als Tragödie, das andere Mal als Farce
