Default fonts for certificates, preferable open source but free will do

Hello,

I am looking for fonts to make a bunch of certificates. I think these
are called Calligraphic or Gothic fonts? Any good resource for these?


So far, I have found Isabella that is something like what I am looking for:
{tmp}$> apt-cache search calligraphic
texlive-fonts-extra - TeX Live: Extra fonts
texlive-latex-extra - TeX Live: LaTeX supplementary packages
ttf-gfs-solomos - ancient Greek oblique font
ttf-isabella - The Isabella free TrueType font
ttf-uralic - Truetype fonts for Cyrillic-based Uralic languages


thanks.

I do my certificates in xfig which includes the fonts (I think) then
have gsfonts and gsfonts-x11. I also have the bitstream-vera or some
such. I've never tried wierd fonts in Latex.

Of course, if its a serious certificate, I get out my nibs and do it by
hand on real parchment or vellum. Its hard for a laser printer to
duplicate the varying ink density of nib placement and lifts.

Doug.
