Thanks again for your very kind help, Reinhard. I will consider that option.

This has also caused me to reconsider my use of LuxiMono. It is used in an 
assembly language book that I have written. I need a mono spaced font that has 
bold so I can highlight the keywords. One of the problems with LuxiMono is 
that one and lower-case el, and the zero and upper-case oh, look very similar. 
This is more of a problem with assembly language than other languages. 
LuxiMono is suggested in The LaTeX Companion, but that book is five years old 
now. Although I tend not to like slashed zeros, it does improve readability in 
assembly language.

Back to the drawing board. (I never really left it.)
