The Paul Lloyd font site is great, I will have to dig around a little bit in that one.
One of my favorite sites for fonts is Scriptorium
They also sell their fonts, but you can often find a freeby to try out.

Some very nice symbol / Dingbat fonts there too. Great find, Ian.
You can download fonts of the map symbols used in the maps for Monte Cook's Ptolus here:

Keep in mind that the Blambot "free" fonts are only free for online webcomic purposes. I wrote to them asking permission to use one for a published map and was politely refused.
Of course, if the map is for your own consumption, then do as thou wilt.
Some of my Favorite Fonts. I really look for fonts that have a character and fit a mood, whether that be for notes and missives my Players find (I like handouts), or maps they find with notes on them, and the like:
The Autorealm font has map symbols. And I don't have a copy of the font now (used to). I think it comes bundled with the freeware.BtW: Does anybody know of a dingbat font for map icons? Like a font that has castles, towers, cities, boats, sea monster, compass rose, etc, etc... I think that would be really useful because of a font's vector scalebility.
