at999,

In what software? I am not aware of any direct conversion tools. One program which uses the .smb format is Autodesk, and I believe they allow loading of TTF fonts as symbols. I don't know if it's a conversion to .smb, though. If it is, even if that's not the application you are using, you may be able to find someone who can make the conversion for you.
