Hi Stephan, sorry for the delay, mailserver seems having some problems.

* AFAICT Ralf produced WML buttons with Photoshop.

* About True Type fonts, Remco van den Berg made such a tool
  but maybe this is what you call ttfont?

* Using Perl interface to Gimp seems a rather good idea. I think Debian
  website buttons are made this way.
