There is a package available that implements Hershey Fonts. See
I modified this package for my own use with versions 3.x and 4.x
of Mathematica. But, I've not used it since version 5 was
released that corrected a problem with font rendering on Macs.
Consequently, I don't know how well it will play with versions 6
and 7. I suspect (given the changes in the way graphics are done
in version 6) you will need to update some of the code to
achieve what you want.
