Request Creating Custom Fonts

Does anyone know what is involved with creating a custom font?

I get that you gotta draw the designs for every letter, number and win-ding but how do you make the pictures into a font file that works?

That's a pretty loaded topic as these days there are fonts for desktop use and fonts specifically for web page usage.

For TrueType fonts (desktops) have a look at FontForge Open Source Font Editor. I'm not familiar with it (it's been many, many years since I've played with editing fonts) but there are some resource links there that may get you down the correct path.
