Actually, this shouldn't generate a huge thread. If you download the SpeedTreeRT demo on opengl.org's front page, you'll see a fairly nice font system, with TrueType support.

Do you think they used a third party library for the generation and display? (I know I could check out the SDK, but that requires faxing and time.) If so, which one?

I basically saw it and said to myself, "that is what my fonts need to look like." No more mosaic font printing for me, if a fairly lightweight solution is available.

Take a look at FTGL if you haven't already: http://homepages.paradise.net.nz/henryj/code/index.html#FTGL
It's quite nice and can be seen as OpenGL/C++ wrapper around freetype2.
