As you and the others don't know, I am the "creator" of those KIM-docs. I used 
WordPrefect 5.1 as basic editor and used its capability to draw lines to draw 
several diagrams etc. as text graphics rather then to scan the as GIF-files or 
Again, if you use a normal texteditor under DOS like WP or EDIT, you'll see 
nice lines, resistors etc. instead of ,  and more of that rubbish. But as I 
said before, tell which characters to use and I'll use my simple ASCII-editor 
to replace the rubbish for more convenient characters. (An other solution is to 
buy a cheap 286 with a 20 MB-drive and a monochroom monitor for just this kind 
of things, no joke)

Could you scan it, please?

You surely will find differences as I took the liberty to correct some real 
errors in the docs.
