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... -- AA (watch the Reply-To!)
