"create your font" tool needed

as the text is a very meaningful part of every skin's layout, it would be really useful to have a kind of tool that makes you do your own font.
I found tons of font libraries on the net, but half of them is not-free, while the other half really sux.

what I was looking for were symbols for my dashboard skins (gasoline, water, oil...) an kinda cool font.

if anybody can help...

I get all my fonts from http://www.fontfile.com/ they have a resonably good library and some rather funky stuff.

If you have a stylish font that you want for the song ticker, you will most likely need a bitmap font because a lot of ttf fonts don't carry the some of the characters that are on the 2nd and 3rd line of the default font. I had to create some of the characters in the font for Gell Cap.

[tip] Beware and 1979 are two of my favourite ttf fonts on that site [/tip]
