ugly truetype fonts

(this must be a FAQ, only I can't find an answer).


I went into the /windows/fonts directory.

I've created a fonts.dir file there (tried ttmkfdir and
mkfontdir/mkfontscale, same difference).

did "xset +fp /windows/fonts/; xset fp rehash".

ugliness ensued.  note: I'm not talking about Gnome or KDE, since
those modern things render their fonts without using the X server.
I'm talking about Emacs, mostly.

the X server over at my Debian box shows the same fonts in the same
apps just fine.  I tried looking there to find the important
difference, but despaired at the sight of defoma...

any suggestions?
