    Hey, thanks for sharing this list of really impressive free fonts. I cant wait to use them in my designs in the near future, It’s a shame that some of the font families are not completely free…

    Ddeja, have you heard about @font-face? Soon enough once its supported by all browsers without the use of hacks etc you will be able to use it in your websites so you can display special text without the need of sIRF or Images to display special font types.

    Great list!

    Well, most of the fonts here aren’t free since you either have to pay for them or become a member somewhere. Nice collection of fonts though.
