Yup, hence the "not absolutely exact". Most of the letters are very very close to the bezel font, but not quite perfect. I've found when I do artwork for my 3dArcade models that the fonts used back in the 70s & 80s are not exactly the same as their versions today, but once they're rasterized and sampled down, you really can't tell.
