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.
