Looking for Software to create a font specimen book?

Hi All,
I posted this yesterday, but didn't get any suggestions, so I thought I would try one more time. I am on the hunt for a versatile software that will take my font collection and organize it into a printed specimen book. Does anyone have any suggestions?

If you're on Leopard, try this:

"Printable Font Book

Print out comprehensive previews of your fonts, including sample text in varying sizes or all available glyphs. Just select fonts in Font Book, choose Print from the File menu, and select any of the three built-in report types"

Taken from Apple's site.

Edit: I posted this yesterday, but didn’t get any suggestions, so I thought I would try one more time.

Not nice.

FontExpert has the ability to print out specimens of selected fonts on your system.

It sounds ideal for your needs.

"Print Fonts
FontExpert 2007 can print selected fonts. It is easy to print character map, "water flow" or face name reports for selected fonts, either installed or uninstalled. You can customize and format page headers and footers as desired, for example, by adding the name of your company. "

I wish FontExplorer X had a feature like that. I suppose a plug-in could be developed. I remember outputting massive sheafs of specimens at my first job using Adobe Type Manager. Oh, ATM. Those were the days... of something.
