(in the "fen" format) into a word processor
diagram. This is a rewrite in Ruby of a C program
(chessdgm), with support for more fonts. The fonts
have been included in the tarball with their

mknfonts doesn't completely automate the process
of creating nfont packages, but it can do most of
the bulk work for you. This works with .ttf, .pfa,
.pfb, .afm, and most formats for which FreeType
can handle and provide PostScript names.
Py-FreeType is a Python extension library that wraps the FreeType v2 API. Using this library, developers can use the facilities offered by FreeType to render glyphs from fonts supported by FreeType.

WorldPrint is a filter for Mozilla (Galeon, etc.),
Htmldoc, and Netscape PostScript output that uses
TrueType fonts to allow the printing of pages
written in Unicode, Big5, SJIS, KOI-8, ISO-8859*,
and other charsets.
The mminstance package creates instances of PostScript Type1 multiple master fonts. (An instance is a version of the font as it looks at one point in its design space.) Mminstance lets you use multiple master fonts with programs that don't handle them directly, such as afm2tfm, ps2pdf, ps2pk, and X Type1 font servers. Mminstance contains two programs. Mmafm creates AFM font metrics from multiple master AMFM and AFM files, and Mmpfb creates a single-master font outline file (PFA or PFB) from the multiple master font itself.
Alphabet Soup is a project which attempts to determine a number of things about the shapes of letters in several different writing systems. First, it hypothesizes a set of basic building blocks that all letters are built up from. Second, it hypothesizes a set of rules, a grammar or syntax, which defines how those pieces combine to make different letters. It can generate individual letters, randomize letters in an input string to create weird but readable text, or generate random strings of symbols.

This HOWTO explains how to extract embedded bitmaps (sbits) out of CJK TrueType fonts, generating high quality bit-mapped fonts for X11. Included are several encoding maps for Chinese, Japanese, and Korean encodings. Most CJK TrueType fonts include embedded bitmaps for 10, 12, 14, 16, 18 and 20 point sizes.
