 IBM character font wanted. (where).

There is a family, ISILGothic[-{Bold|BoldOblique|Oblique}], which,
unfortunately, bears an Adobe copyright notice.  Looks like a slightly
hacked Letter Gothic.  IBM distributes it with certain IBM publishing
products, and it's available at some commercial typesetters.  I guess
you'd have to check with IBM or Adobe about conditions of availability.
