More information:
This project shows you how to create your own vector font at runtime. The code consists of two projects (zip inside zip) the inner zip is a program that I used to create polygons for my font (kanguroo_font.txt). This font isn't nice because I'm not good with graphics, but if you want, you can improve it by just changing the values in kanguroo_font.txt file. Every dot coordinate is in round brackets. If there are several polygons used in a character, for example the letter "i", then the "--" sequence is used to mark the end of the polygon and start of a new one.

Instructions: Click the link below to download the code. Select 'Save' from the IE popup dialog. Once downloaded, open the .zip file from your local drive using WinZip or a comparable program to view the contents.
