    Check out NeHe's site, he has a tutorials on a little bit of everything including bitmap and outline fonts. I think there is a link in the coding section of this site.

    Nehe's site is ok, but it only explains things as for beginners. Ok, i learned some parts there, but the text routines are the worst of all there. They aren't compatible as opengl is, and i think there is a tut missing on how to input mor than One keypress, eg. reading a string or a float from the user.
