SILGraphite (formerly OpenGraphite) is a project within SIL's Non-Roman Script Initiative and Language Software Development groups to provide extensible cross-platform rendering capabilities for complex non-Roman writing systems. It consists of a rule-based programming language, Graphite Description Language (GDL), that can be used to describe the behavior of a writing system, a compiler for that language, and a rendering engine that can serve as the backend of a text processing application. SILGraphite renders TrueType fonts that have been extended by means of compiling a GDL program. It is currently being integrated into Gecko/Mozilla through the SILA project, a GNU/Linux port is also underway, and there are plans for OpenOffice.org and Abiword integration.
gbdfed is a GTK+-based BDF font editor. Multiple fonts can be loaded from the command line. Multiple fonts can be open at the same time. Cutting and pasting glyphs between fonts, font name and property editing, and built-in online help. It imports PK/GF, HBF, PSF, CP, Linux FNT, VFONT, OpenType/TrueType, and some FON/FNT fonts. It can export PSF2 fonts.
Gentium is a typeface family designed to enable the diverse ethnic groups around the world who use the Latin script to produce readable, high-quality publications. It supports a wide range of Latin-based alphabets, and includes glyphs that correspond to all the Latin ranges of Unicode.
5x9 and 5x10 are two X11 fonts intended for use with xterm or other programs requiring readable small fonts. At only 5 pixels wide, they are particularly well suited to small laptop screens, allowing two 80 column windows side by side on an 800x600 screen (albeit with no room for window frames), or three windows across with room to spare on a 1280x1024 screen. The fonts implement VT100 line-drawing characters. Bolding is not directly supported; xterm does adequate bolding by duplicating pixels.
Font Industry (字体工业) makes big charset font creation easier. The program converts a scanned in grid sheet, containing a lot of glyphs, into a bitmap font. The glyphs will be automatically indexed by Unicode or with a user-selected charset order. The bitmap font can then be converted to an outline font like TTF or OpenType font.
libtholoura is a text-image distortion library, which is useful for sites that want to ensure that a human (and not a bot) is viewing pages. It is optimized to produce images of strings distorted in a way that makes it impossible for an OCR to read, but humans can. The library takes a string (preferably ASCII) string and is able to dynamically produce PNG indexed images. The distortion filters are external plugins.
The PrecisionID 2 of 5 Interleaved Barcode Font package contains 6 sizes of TrueType and PostScript fonts, each supplied in normal and text readable format. The package also contains complete documentation, specifications, PrecisionID Font Formatting Components, and implementation examples for Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Access, and Crystal Reports. This barcode type is also known as ITF and Interleaved 2 of 5.
