The font metrics associated with a type 1 font.

The printer font metrics associated with a type 1 font.
<filename>.ttf</filename>
A <trademark class="registered">TrueType</trademark> font
<filename>.fot</filename>
An indirect reference to a TrueType font (not an actual font)
<filename>.fon</filename>, <filename>.fnt</filename>
Bitmapped screen fonts
The <filename>.fot</filename> is used by <trademark class="registered">Windows</trademark> as sort of a symbolic link to the actual <trademark class="registered">TrueType</trademark> font (<filename>.ttf</filename>) file. The <filename>.fon</filename> font files are also used by Windows. I know of no way to use this font format with FreeBSD.
What Font Formats Can I Use?
Which font file format is useful depends on the application being used. FreeBSD by itself uses no fonts. Application programs and/or drivers may make use of the font files. Here is a small cross reference of application/driver to the font type suffixes:
Driver
vt
<filename>.hex</filename>
syscons
<filename>.fnt</filename>
Application
<application>Ghostscript</application>
<filename>.pfa</filename>, <filename>.pfb</filename>, <filename>.ttf</filename>
<application>X11</application>
<application>Groff</application>
<filename>.pfa</filename>, <filename>.afm</filename>
<application>Povray</application>
The <filename>.fnt</filename> suffix is used quite frequently. I suspect that whenever someone wanted to create a specialized font file for their application, more often than not they chose this suffix. Therefore, it is likely that files with this suffix are not all the same format; specifically, the <filename>.fnt</filename> files used by syscons under FreeBSD may not be the same format as a <filename>.fnt</filename> one encounters in the <trademark class="registered">MS-DOS</trademark>/<trademark class="registered">Windows</trademark> environment. I have not made any attempt at using other <filename>.fnt</filename> files other than those provided with FreeBSD.
Setting a Virtual Console to 80x60 Line Mode
First, an 8x8 font must be loaded. To do this, <filename>/etc/rc.conf</filename> should contain the line (change the font name to an appropriate one for your locale):
font8x8="iso-8x8" # font 8x8 from /usr/share/syscons/fonts/* (or NO).
The command to actually switch the mode is <citerefentry><refentrytitle>vidcontrol</refentrytitle><manvolnum>1</manvolnum></citerefentry>:
<prompt>%</prompt> <userinput>vidcontrol VGA_80x60</userinput>
Various screen-oriented programs, such as <citerefentry><refentrytitle>vi</refentrytitle><manvolnum>1</manvolnum></citerefentry>, must be able to determine the current screen dimensions. As this is achieved this through <command>ioctl</command> calls to the console driver (such as <citerefentry><refentrytitle>syscons</refentrytitle><manvolnum>4</manvolnum></citerefentry>) they will correctly determine the new screen dimensions.
