Exists any plug-in to type with bitmap fonts correctly?

I know the GIMP has its own text tool, but this tool doesn't support bitmap fonts correctly, the tool draws default font 'Sans' instead. Is there any plug-in to type with bitmap fonts they're created? Like font 'Terminal' used by MS DOS command line in Windows XP? In the Windows CMD it's possible to change the font size (or font itself). While there are two fonts to select ('Lucida Console' & 'Bitmaps fonts' - 'Terminal'), both have different size settings ('Lucida Console' have regular TrueType size selections while 'Terminal' have bitmap width & height sizes - default size is 8x12 - this draws classic DOS font).

So in short: I'm looking for any plug-in to type with windows bitmap fonts (only bitmap fonts) with sizes reproduced in the FON file (8x12, 13x20, etc.)

In attachment is capture of Windows CMD properties dialog.
