Does anyone here know where I can find some bitmaps that contain complete character sets? That is, the ASCII characters from SPACE through to the TILDE (95 characters in total I believe). Preferably fixed width fonts. I know I can make my own using TrueType, but I''m looking more for fonts that use colors well. I have lots of digit strips (numbers 0 through 9 only), but not very many that contain all the other characters. //TOOM

Check this page out:

I leave it to you to check out if it''s ok to use them though.

Another idea is to search for old demo graphics, with demo I mean those demos made by demogroups back in the old days. Most demos used bitmapped fonts, often with fixed with. So if you may find some kind of archive you''ll probably find a lot of fonts too.
