i am creating polygons of ttf fonts in an application. i used the nehe's tutorial to get me started, but everytime i want to print a string i have to create the whole font! that is a BIG performance hit...so can i create only the letters i need?

Yup... are you using a library to do this or do you create them from scratch? The library I use lets me specify a specific string of characters to create. It's called Freetype, I believe available at www.freetype.org. (http://www.freetype.org.)
