    Although you should have found all of this information by searching this forum, here is a list of pixel (bitmap) fonts sites:

    http://www.orgdot.com/aliasfonts/ - well crafted
    http://www.dafont.com/ - excellent selection
    http://www.miniml.com - there is also an excellent tutorial on the use of pixel fonts here - the full versions are no longer free, but they are worth the cost if you use a lot of small text
    http://www.kgroup.ru/fonts.html - excellent arial, courier, times and verdana pixel fonts
    http://www.fontsforflash.com/ - nice fonts - not free, but very reasonably priced
    http://htmlandbeyond.tripod.com/ari11fla.zip - right click on this link and choose save as - the is the Arial 11 for Flash font
    http://ziz.pekori.to/stuff/font.html
    http://www.vfive.com
    http://www.hi-type.de
    http://www.fontomas.com/48
    http://www.fountain.nu
    http://www.plusism.com
    http://w1.192.telia.com/~u19212831/
    http://www.fontalicious.com/fontext/fonts8.htm
    http://www.dsg4.com/04/extra/index.html
    http://cgm.cs.mcgill.ca/~luc/pixel.html

    Please remember that if you do not follow all of the rules for using these fonts they will look terrible.

    My test for whether something is a pixel font or not is if it behaves like one - write some text, place it (upper left corner) on integral coordinates, use the correct font size and view in player or browser. If it looks sharp it could be a well-behaved pixel font. Now move it to a fractional coordinate - does it get less sharp? Change the point size up or down by one - is it less sharp? If the last two answers are yes then it is probably a good pixel font. Remember that just because someone says they have made a pixel font doesn't guarantee that they actually know how to do this.

    Cheers,

    Flick
