Bitmap Fonts, Java, Wingdings and Unicode

Bitmap Font Builder App

After my brush with the script-fu I thought I'd go back to basics and do the bitmap font creator as a Java app. I have whipped up this app for knocking up old school bitmap fonts. The gradient fills haven't really surrvived Pay attention to the picture, as it shows at what code points to find the Wingdings glyphs in the Unicode set. It's not 0..255, as has puzzled many Java coders before!
