Some time ago, I deposited a font for Macintosh computers with the EMBL
software archive.  This font had two components.  Puppy represents
nucleotide sequences as a series of dots in three lines.  Kitty has
characters that have a vague resemblance to amino acid structure and
function.  Puppy is available as a font itself in PUPPY_PS.HQX or
PUPPY_TT.HQX.  Puppy and Kitty are available in combination (lower case
puppy; upper case KITTY) in PUPKIT_PS.HQX and PUPKIT_TT.HQX.  The two file
types are for postscript and true type fonts.

The ftp address of the EMBL archive is: ftp.EMBL-Heidelberg.DE
