I'd never heard of FontForge before. It looks pretty impressive. Do
you (or anyone else) have experience with both FontForge and MetaFont,
to compare the two? Yes, I know that they are very different beasts.
I'm just looking for opinions on which I might want to use -- although
when I skimmed the FontForge FAQ, it looked like it might be possible
to import MetaFont fonts into the program or vice versa...
