You are going to hsve tu use a tool like this: http://www.fontlab.com/font-editor/typetool/

Or the old Macromedia Fontographer, that was acquired by the company above.

Thanks for the info Ricardo, looks more involved than I want to do, i was hoping there might be a simpler plugin of some kind for this by now.

Here’s a great article from Mashable showing a few ways of doing font-making. I seem to remember, that there’s a few freeware solutions out there.
