    Here are some pixel font resources:

    http://www.orgdot.com/aliasfonts/
    http://www.dafont.com/
    http://www.miniml.com - there is also an excellent tutorial on the use of pixel fonts here
    http://ziz.pekori.to/stuff/font.html
    http://www.vfive.com

    http://www.dsg4.com/04/extra/index.html
    http://cgm.cs.mcgill.ca/~luc/pixel.html
    http://www.fontsforflash.com/ - like the miniml fonts, these are not all free
    http://htmlandbeyond.tripod.com/ari11fla.zip - the Arial 11 for Flash font - it is one of those stupid tripod addresses that needs to be copied and pasted into the browser rather than clicked

    Here are two images of some pixel fonts:
    http://www.wellesley.edu/Chemistry/F...ixelfonts.html - black text on white background

    http://www.wellesley.edu/Chemistry/F...xelfonts1.html - white text on black background

    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).

    The rules are simple, but must be followed - correct size (8 for most) or some multiple of that size (but they will pixelate at multiple sizes - some like that, I do not); all text left justified; all text placed on integral x and y coordinates and, if the font is in a movie clip, the upper left-hand element of that clip must be on integral coordinates.

    It is also important to remember that some things claiming to be pixel fonts are not, and some of the fonts you find just don't work very well.

    Hope this helps,

    Flick
