Pixel fonts?

I use Hooge 0655, a lot of people use Hooge and they're definitely good quality pixel fonts.

Variants of Hooge and Samson are pretty commonly used.

For some things you can also use Visitor1 or 2 with a size of 8

Most pixel fonts do only work with a size set as a multiple of "8"! So font_size = 8, 16, 24, 32, 40, 48 etc.
