Here's the link Peter Bruhn provided to David Lemon's article on hinting:

It's also available in html fomat, thanks to Google.com:

I have also come across this article, "Hints on Hinting in Fontographer" on Macromedia's site:

http://www.macromedia.com/support/fontographer/ts/documents/tn3718.html

And then, there is this rather useful basic tutorial on font design, including manual hinting, from [Divide By Zero]:

I had that problem with it this morning too, but it worked fine when Peter posted it. Odd. That's how I happened upon the Google translation, actually.

Anyway, I hope these help. I'm trying to figure out hinting as well. :)
