If I wanted to design my own font, how would I do it, such that it could actually be installed?
Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...
You will need a font design program like "Fontographer" or "FontLab Studio" both by FontLab. I don't know how much they cost, but they have programs for both PC and Mac.
I use Bitmap font Builder: http://www.lmnopc.com/bitmapfontbuilder/
An alternative is the Fontifier. With that, you just have to make the font by hand (ie, pencil & paper).
