Check "Fonts - Win95" and "Graphics Utilities" sections.  I won't even start to list what there but there's tonnes of good stuff and easy to navigate and find what you want.



SOME TIPS

1. Use true type fonts.  Raster fonts will not scale well [however they usually look good at the original size only].  Neither will old style Windows vector fonts (at large sizes they look bad - but there are not many of these being created these days).  Raster
2. You can use true type fonts once download to create GIFs with pretty much whatever drawing program you use.  
3. if a font doesn't come with bold/italic options, Windows "synthesizes" this by making guesses on how to embolden italicize the font.  Sometimes the guess are not so good.  Basically suck these and see, in general at large sizes, use only fonts which are designed for italic as italics, etc.
