If you happen to have CorelDraw, you can do the conversion easily: Open the WMF for a single character in CorelDraw, use the "Weld" command to combine the entire thing into a single shape, export to TTF and select the keyboard character your shape will replace.

If you don't have CorelDraw, then you can do this with any font editing program - fontographer, fontlab, etc.  Such programs may require you to convert the WMF to EPS first though.

Cheers,
DCS

Thanks!
So now the question is: there's a freeware program to convert a WMF to a EPS?

Here are a couple of cheap ones I found doing a search on CNet, but I can't attest to their quality or ease of use.  I doubt you'll find a freeware font editor.  And again, you may have to convert your WMF to EPS to import it into one of these programs.

shareware $50

shareware $99

Or, if it's just for one project, you could also just bring a disk with your WMF's and your TTF to your local Kinko's store and rent one of their computers with CorelDraw long enough to add your characters to the font.

Doh! Didn't read your question correctly, sorry.  WMF to EPS, yes there is freeware that does that.  For converting one file at a time, this one's free (but batch conversion requires shareware fee):
