Basic Pd oft info is in the /font/README.txt: https://github.com/pure-data/pure-data/tree/master/font <https://github.com/pure-data/pure-data/tree/master/font>

If someone compiles a list of useful fonts, we could also add them to the readme and/or a wiki page some where (if there isn't one already).
