Default Sharp beginner kid asks: how are fonts made?

Hi, all!

An overseas friend has an 8 year old son who has an unusually sharp comprehension of things. A current fascination is fonts; he wonders how they're made, and what software he might use. I'm very rusty about the subject, but I knew where to turn.

I forwarded the 5/24 Fontographer item from the home page here, and suggested joining the forum. This is the kind of kid (and family) that will make good use of any pointers we provide.

Anybody have any initial comments, articles to dig out, etc?
