I'm looking into writing a java program to run on an ereader. It doesn't have many fonts and I'm not even sure if I can download extra ones. If I can't is there a way (a simple class etc) of drawing letters to appear more like handwriting? It doesn't need to be animated. I'm still waiting for access to their SDK so I can't test the availability of extra fonts.

Cheers

Mike

Wouldn't it be easier to just write a font renderer if it doesn't already have one? Then you could use whatever font you wanted.

No idea - I haven't really played with this area of Java before
Looking up "Java handwriting" just produced handwriting recognition systems.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
