How about "Softy"? This shareware package was discussed on Conlang some time ago. I downloaded it and played with it, but I confess I haven't used it much so I'm not able to give an unqualified endorsement. The homepage is at: Alternatively, in the past I've used a package called "Type Designer" which at the time cost US$119. I don't have any purchase info on that one, but I suspect a search of the web would turn something up. The original publisher is a German company whose name I don't remember, but there is a US reseller. Type Designer is what I used to make the Aluric Font, which I actually need to revisit and clean up. Tony Harris Community College of Vermont
