3D fonts

Hi. I am a beginner in openGL and so far managed to output some 2D points and lines on the screen.

Can anyone provide me with a guide to create a 3D font and a 3D circle? Do you use vertex to create the points and then link them?

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

if you are using windows go to
there are tutorials on 3d fonts and a lot of other interesting things there
