I've been searching for public domain fonts, and there are several sites
that I've found. Some of them contain non-free fonts as well, but the
public domain ones are clearly marked. These are not all standard
"practical" fonts; some of them are decorative. I think one of these
sites contains fonts under the old BSD license.
