I've had good success after following the TT-Debian mini-HOWTO which
demonstrates installing xfstt and a number of True-Type fonts. NS
will use them and I found it to make a tremendous difference. Also,
I've found that the latest builds of Mozilla use TT fonts even better
than NS, so it really is a good solution. There is another True Type
font server that Potato wants to install that depends on the FreeType
library. My results weren't satisfactory so I went back to xfstt.
