FontMap
FontMap may be used to view and print both installed and external fonts; it can display a table, individual characters, a keyboard view, font description, or whatever text you wish to enter.  Individual characters can be displayed in a "full-screen" view and custom table parameters can be set to "zoom" in on a selected portion of a font.  National character sets and unicode characters available for a font may also be displayed.

For an individual font most all of the views that are displayed can be printed - this includes a variety of table formats, text, a keyboard view, font description, and installation information.  Multiple fonts can be printed in either a brief or "verbose" format.  If you have a CD (or whatever) with a bunch of fonts on it, you can easily print a sample of all the fonts it contains without needing to install them.  Or, you can browse thru the fonts and selectively install the ones you like.

FontMap is a shareware program with a $19.95 registration fee.  If you like this program and use it frequently, please show your support by purchasing FontMap.  Note that printing, as well as the display of unicode and National character sets, is only available to registered users.  Versions beyond 2.41 will only be available to registered users.

Acknowlegement:  The install/uninstall package for FontMap was created using Inno Setup; I would like to thank its authors.
