PfaEdit uses a text format as its native storage, and I imagine it wouldn't be too hard to write a program that looks at the C64 bitmap font and emits text lines of line and move commands in this format. Then PfaEdit can export TrueType or Type1 for you. -- Pontus Lidman, firstname.lastname@example.org, Software Engineer No matter how cynical you get, it's impossible to keep up.
