I've used Metafont and Metapost to create fonts, both under Linux (but they work under Windows, too, I assume). Metafont enables you to produce native fonts for LaTeX. In my other project I'm planning to create TTFs somehow from the output of Metapost (not yet done). You could also use Fontforge to edit font files, it is a graphical tool -- Metafont and Metapost use text input. Fontforge allows you to export the font files (SFD files, IIRC) to TTF, so then you can probably use it in Word (I have never used it, but TTFs are quite general). **Henrik
