I am not sure what format the font is going to end up as.

I have accepted Jesus Christ as my personal savior. If you have too and you aren't afraid to say it, copy and paste this into your signature.

Truetype is a good export format as Linux (yes I use that), wingdows, and Mac all support it...

Fonts in bitmap? Ugh. See if you can get them to be vector-drawn...

Fontographer lets you use vectors but the process is very involved. Better for modifying pre-existing typefaces than for starting from scratch.

Personally I would rather make use stencils, straightedge and compass to draw out the characters on graph paper, scan them into the computer and clean and align them. (Alignment is the real killer.)

My hope is that nobody is going to go any larger than 80 point.

If you want a software that can create fonts, try this one, it has been used a lot on Linux...

Thanks. I will have to look at this one as well.

I have been very slowly working on the templates and am currently about 75% of the way through. I still think that I can have everything completed by August. I can probably upload a mapping before then.

Update:

I lost the stencil I was using. (I cannot belive I let this happen.) Now I'm stuck. Hopefully I should have everything completed by the end of Autumn though.
