    If you have a computer with Windows you should be able to just do it yourself.

    Using Windows 7 (steps would probably be similar for other versions of Windows, but I don't have time to confirm right now):
    go to Control Panel
    go to Fonts
    find Verdana, double click on it
    choose which one you want (Regular would be for the main font... I'm not sure if the Droid uses bold, italic, or bold italic for sans-serif fonts or not, I only usually swap out the base font), right click on it, copy
    paste it somewhere (it'll paste as something like verdana.ttf)
    rename it (for the base font, it'd be DroidSans.ttf)
    might want to do a backup, in case the phone doesn't like the font.. I've had to nandroid a few times because of being sloppy with fonts
    push it to /system/fonts

    I would imagine that would be it. I didn't actually try pushing the font onto my phone, so I don't know for sure that it'll work (I'm not sure if there is any sort of signing on Windows fonts that would prevent it from working; I know I've edited non-Windows fonts with FontForge and rebuilt them with no problems), but give a shot and find out.

    once you find the font you want and have it renamed. Just drop it into your goodies folder on your sd card. Pick a font on the sd card you dont want and replace it with your new font. Then just use the scripts to change.
