What is a glyph worth?

I designed a display font a few years back and released it free for non-commercial use. I occasionally get requests to use words or letters set in the font for commercial purposes. What is a reasonable amount to charge?

Does the amount charged vary based on the breadth of the usage? If it's a major corporation or a small business? If it's just some guy selling t-shirts for his band? If they want to use one letter? A word? An arbitrary amount of text?
Is there any threat that my work will be used in a trademark and that I'll therefore lose the right to use it in some contexts (or further license it in those contexts)?
Is there any particular phrasing you'd suggest for an agreement to allow its use? Something about "worldwide non-exclusive use in all media" or the like?
