Vitaly Friedman, a freelance web developer has compiled a list of the 25 best free fonts. Perhaps even more impressively, he continues to update it with license changes and new fonts as they change.

As far as I can tell the only oversight is that there is no monospace font (like courier) represented in the list, but still, this could be useful for some future projects.
