3D fonts, 3D fonts from 2D fonts, common fonts data

Hi everybody,

i'd like to use some fonts in 3D for a logo, for that i
have several questions:

1.
Can i download 3D fonts somewhere?  (And info or example
code how to render the data in OpenGL)?

2.
Can i generate 3D fonts from 2D fonts?
Like give them a depth and smooth the edges (45 degree)?
This should be a common algorithm, has anybody done that?

Regards,
Torsten.

You should look on http://nehe.gamedev.net for fonts in 3D.
