Font Rendering Component

We are currently running IIS 6 on Windows Server 2003.

I am looking for a font rendering component. It should take a typeface
(Truetype) and print out the supplied text as a .GIF or .JPG

It should work with traditional .ASP or .NET.

I have looked at ServerObjects, Inc.

Any others?

I'm not sure why you would want to do this, but you may want to look into
Microsoft weft.
it allows you to create font objects that download onto the users machine

Simple, I want to generate headline graphics on the fly without embedding a
font through weft (as I do on our intranet). Yahoo! Stores has a similar
html command available to create a graphic text element. It's just being
used to create labels and banners, not paragraph text (so much), and I have
Googled it till I'm Googley-eyed and cannot find but these two.

I have also looked at

AFAIK, only PHP can do that.

Look at the GDI+ libraries in .Net. You should be able to end up with
a service which you can just pass '?text=Monkey' to, and it'll render
an image with that text in a fancy font and what-have-you.

Try this:
http://www.codersource.net/asp_net_i...om_string.aspx

And the GDI library references on MSDN:
http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/lib...m.drawing.aspx
http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/lib...drawing2d.aspx
http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/lib...wing.text.aspx

I've seen it done quite neatly before, although haven't been directly
involved in it.

Have you looked at GDI+ and System.Drawing in dotnet?
