Bitmap Gothic Font for free...

Hi,
Here is a text written with a font I made with FC, I've called it "Argor Cwar Scaqh" that means "Argor's Square Writing" and which is available on my site with a few others (Free Fonts page):

Argtxep: "Concept of Citadel": http://www.argor.org

Image OME CREATIVE IDEAS THERE BUT ...

The currency symbol is not a very satisfactory way of adding Ornamented Caps to the font because it needs a lot of work by the user to centre the glyphs accurately. Not all applications support kerning and some letters, like M, Y, and P, overlap the box. The letter following the Ornamented Cap collides with the box so again it needs kerning.

:idea: Why not create a matching typestyle with bold attributes, designing each capital as an Ornamented Cap. That way the caps don't have to be monospaced, and different letters could use a larger or smaller box, or one with a cut-out for the descender. The user then just applies bold to regular text to get an Ornamented Capital letter.
