Of particular note is the "SBIT32" program, which gives access to the bitmap data within TrueType fonts. It requires the bitmaps to be in the .BDF format, which is how I found Fony via Google. I'm about to test out the embedding of bitmaps into my TTF, and I'll share the results tomorrow.

Would it be possible somehow when importing a TTF to specify which characters to include. I am working on an embedded solution, where I can use different FNT files for different Unicode ranges. So I have a file for the characters 0-255, another for latin extended 1 (256-383), another one for cyrillic, greek etc. But lately, I was checking out some east asian scripts, and I would need for example to import korean precomposed characters into a number of FNT files.
I.e. Import TTF, select characters 0xAC00-0xADFF and import them in one file, go on with 0xAE00 - 0xAFFF etc.
I'm also super interested in using Fony for editing Unicode chracters, but having separate files for each Unicode range would be a very impractical solution for say Japanese and Chinese (and I assume anything else that needs more than 256 glyphs.
Any plans to have Fony export to something else other than fnt?
