This link does not work.

I suppose Nadim meant:

Superb work! First time I see them and I am truly impressed ;)

Yeah, great work, man !

I am not sure I understood what you mean ?

Adding the images next to the font name is technically easy. But I prefer to make a text link like 'Preview Font' which points to the PNG or the PDF file (on sf.net) and a 'Download Font' which also points to the zipped file on sf.net.

However, do as you see may fit ;)
