Other DIY sites
There's lots more online to allow you to explore and work with fonts. Here's just a few links that we enjoyed:
Personality traits and font preference - what does your choice of font say about you?
Type navigator - a visual font search system
Typesetter - want to see the effects of changing and tweaking fonts? This tool lets you compare screen fonts side-by-side.
Identifont - want to know what a font you've seen is called? Answer some simple questions, and all will be revealed.
Readability - how much difference does font size and line spacing make to the ease of reading?
Typeface anatomy - want to sort your kerning from your leading and your glyphs from your tabular figures? Start here.
