How do I make a TTF font from scratch?

Help with creating fonts (TTF). Under OS 9, Adobe had fontographer, but that program isnít being made any more. Aside from Adobe Illustrator, is there a program that will allow me to create vector maps that can be converted to TTFs?

What OSX software is out there to make fonts. I am looking for something under a couple of hundred bucks, if such a thing exists. If not, what do any of you recommend?

If any of you have suggestions on making fonts I would love to get any advice.

Aah... Fontographer. Never managed to get it to work under Classic -- shame.

Fontlab say they have plans for Fontographer. We shall see...

Well, for the price there's TypeTool. And there's a demo.

Fontlab itself remains a top quality tool but is a little out of your price range. You may be able to find a second-hand copy somewhere, though.

Thank you for the information. I find it funny that one company seems to hold all of the viable resources for creating Type 1, True Type, and Open Type fonts for OSX. I am starting to create the font I need. Hopefully they will send the key at some point today.
