I want to create a new font (TTF or OTF) that contains certain glyphs from one font (e.g. Arial) and certain glyps from another font (i.e. Courier). I know the unicode IDs for the glyphs.

About 200 glyphs (greek, cyrillic, etc) need to be copied over.

Any tools that could do this task?

An outline font editor that lets you create your own postscript, truetype, opentype, cid-keyed, multi-master, cff, svg and bitmap (bdf, FON, NFNT) fonts, or edit existing ones. Also lets you convert one format to another. FontForge has support for many macintosh font formats.
