There are a lot of really, really BAD handwritten fonts available out there. If you need a handwritten font, you have to sort through the 95% of crap to find a few that are useful. Here’s another list that offers a lot of crap and a few gems.
I don’t particularly like a lot of fonts included with applications as the “code” font. Attractive, monospaced fonts are few and far between, so I’m happy to have found Anonymous Pro, a free, professionally-designed monospace font that looks great for working with code.
Keep an eye on Typekit, because that’s how we’ll be doing a lot of fonts on the web in the very near future.
