You could take a look at Font Creator Program from, which is free for 30 days, and not expensive if you choose to register (US$20-30 IIRC). I think it is Windows-only (unless they've changed it). If your font is basically Cyrillic, but with some modifications, it should be quite simple to copy a Cyrillic font, then make the necessary changes. ("Simple" of course is a relative term, for those of us who are computer-challenged.) (A related problem I've never quite understood-- my computer has various Cyrillic and Greek fonts available, but I find it odd that typing "a" does not bring up Gk. or Cyr. alpha/a etc. )
