Very beautiful. I love the uppercase.

The only one I question is the zero...it seems a little small (no pun intended) relative to the other numerals.

Thank you, everyone. :-)

@aph: Believe it or not, the lowercase took three times longer to do than the uppercase. Do something, find problems, then tweak, then find new problems, repeat. In the end I tested every single uppercase letter with every single lowercase letter — Aa Ab Ac..., Ba Bb Bc..., &c. Even ones that don't ever appear together — Qx,Yg, &c. That's why the V W X Y have the over reaching arms; that's why the ascenders are somewhat tall (try typing 'This'); that's why the l descends so low. I ended making a mess of the whole thing. Not all solutions were perfect, but I had to draw the line somewhere (NPI). The good thing about pixel fonts is you never have to worry about the bricks—there's the square brick, and that's all there is. It's much easier to tweak and test. Push B and go to it. If you don't like something, hold Shift and erase. R.Meek is a usability genius. (Thanks, Rob!) This was a fun fontstuction to do.
