We've all seen the usual routine where normally a type foundry or shop will preview live text and allow a ridiculous PNG or GIF download. However, a few smaller foundries do offer actual font files as free-trial-limited-character-map version downloads, like Grilli Type and Pangram Pangram. Anyone can add to this list?

Actually you can find some on MyFonts.com using the advanced search to filter out demo versions. Currently finds a little over 1000 fonts.

The search returns families of fonts, but within those families you will find weights that are free or demo weights. The process is similar to buying a real font: you have to add it to cart and check out, but the fee remains 0$.
