xfonts-traditional binary package in Ubuntu Xenial i386

 Provides "traditional" versions of fixed-width fonts.
 These are a set of 6x13 fonts (including "fixed"), with foundry name
 "trad" instead of "misc", with several glyphs replaced with earlier
 versions from before Markus Kuhn's changes:
  - balanced ` '
  - less tall [ ] ( ) { }
  - centred *
  - high ~
  - slightly higher &
  - traditional appearance of W a
 These changes make the fonts compatible with the US-ASCII character
 set. (UTF-8 is not compatible with ASCII in its usage of the
 backquote and some other characters.) With these fonts, pre-2000
 documents (including ASCII art and GNU manuals) will render
 Optionally, this package will edit your system configuration to make
 the default fonts used by xterm refer to the traditional font.
 (This package does not actually contain the bulk of the font data;
 rather, it automatically generates the required modified fonts for
 each relevant font you have installed.)
