    Here is a recent post of mine from the Swish forum that lists many pixel font resources and a link to a page showing some fonts. There is also good information to be found by searching the fonts forum here at FlashKit.

    I found that as I used more pixel fonts I had trouble remembering which ones were to be done at 8 pixels, which at 9 etc. (senior moments like this are becoming more common I'm afraid), so I made up a chart that I can reference - this is certainly not all of the comon pixel fonts but it can give you an idea of what is available.

    If there is no number on parentheses after the font name then that font is set at 8 points (including pixel punch - which goes to show that point size is a meaningless measure).

    These fonts come from the top three sites in this list of pixel fonts:

    http://www.miniml.com - there is also an excellent tutorial on the use of pixel fonts here
