These gateways lead to a discussion of fonts and where to find them. With Esperfonto, Will Harris provides an interesting tool for making font decisions: Casual or Formal -> Body or Display -> Friendly or Serious: Cool or Warm: Modern or Traditional.

Warning: It is very easy to spend hours and hours downloading neat and interesting fonts; they are like the Midnight Snack Table on a Mediterranean cruise liner - ice carvings and delectable goodies laid out as far as the eye can see.
