This is what the author of the proggy fonts writes about ProggyTiny:
"Real programmers use Proggy Tiny. Proggy Tiny is well-proportioned and is the smallest programming font I could come up with while maintaining distinctive characters and good readability.[...]

Use at point size 9 (bitmap font), 12 (truetype), or 16 (mac truetype)

The bitmap .fon version of this font includes 2 font files. One is the ANSI extended version, and the other is OEM extended. The latter is a console font and can be selected in console applications on Windows machines."

So the bitmap-version will get the two points for console use and containing all characters, but loose one for not being truetype.
But it may get an extra point for being almost your prefered size.

Let's think the unthinkable, let's do the undoable, let's prepare to grapple with the ineffable itself, and see if we may not eff it after all.
