Bitmap Font Code

Anyone here have some code laying around for generating and displaying bitmap fonts in OpenGL ES? I need to start using bitmap fonts for my next game so I can get some more styled fonts, but I can't seem to find any available code. Figured I'd ask around before reinventing the wheel.

I wrote a bitmap font creator based on the code here: http://gpwiki.org/index.php/OpenGL:T...ls:Font_System

It's a great start. I think the only thing I altered was for UTF-8 character support, but I forget.

Let us all know how you get on.
