Probably the best font editor around.

FontLab 4.6 by Fontlab Ltd. is a high-end font editor with features and continuous improvements that make it the first choice for most professional type designers. FontLab allows you to create new fonts and modify existing ones (please mind the font’s user license when modifying existing fonts!). It has extensive drawing tools that help adding new characters to the fonts, a metrics window where the sidebearings and the kerning of the font can be set manually or automatically. It has superb autohinting ensuring solid screen quality of created fonts, plus a unique set of professional manual hinting tools to create fonts with highest screen quality possible. With FontLab, the user can make new fonts by blending existing ones together, or by applying various effects and transformations. FontLab supports Unicode and can open and save PostScript Type 1 and TrueType fonts, as well as fonts in the new OpenType format and in the advanced MultipleMaster format. With FontLab, you can change virtually any internal parameter of the font, controlling the font’s naming, version information, encoding, hinting etc. Finally, with Python scripting support, it is possible to automate any FontLab tasks and even add completely new features to the application.
