    I just downloaded this great powertoy from microsoft.com. its purpose is to let you create fonts out of handwritten characters. I just tried it out, it works perfectly. especially with my tablet pc (graphic designer's best friend!)

    lol it even made my terrible handwriting look great, because of the pressure sensitivity.

    heres a sample of the font I made (can you even read it? I hope my handwriting isnt THAT bad)

    oh yeah I think i've seen that before,, but never tried it.

    the main reason I like this program is because you can zoom in while you draw each character, which is great if you just can't seem to make a letter look right. plus it supports pressure with a tablet, I dont know if a website is able to do that.

    I'll try this out. I don't have a Tablet PC, but I do have a Wacom tablet.

    EDIT: Are there any native solutions for Mac?
