	NewScaledDiskFont -- Create a DiskFont scaled from another. (V36)

	header = NewScaledDiskFont(srcFont, destTextAttr)
	D0                         A0       A1

	struct DiskFontHeader *NewScaledDiskFont( struct TextFont *,
		struct TTextAttr * );

	srcFont - the font from which the scaled font is to be
	destTextAttr - the desired attributes for the new scaled
	    font.  This may be a structure of type TextAttr or

	header - a pointer to a DiskFontHeader structure.  This is not
		being managed by the diskfont.library, however.

	o   This function may use the blitter.
	o   Fonts containing characters that render wholly outside
	    the character advance cell are currently not scalable.
	o   The font, and memory allocated for the scaled font can
	    can be freed by calling StripFont() on the font,
	    and then calling UnLoadSeg() on the segment created
	    by this function.

	    Both the TextFont structure, and segment pointer are contained
	    within the DiskFontHeader struct.  The DiskFontHeader structure
	    will also be freed as part of the UnLoadSeg() call.
	    StripFont() is a new graphics.library call as of V36.
