This may not be exactly what you are looking for but..

Keith Packard has his own web site, www.keithp.com, from there he has
various items including some fonts and example Xftconfig's.


If you download the truetype.tar.gz and unpack it to /usr/lib/X11/fonts
it will create a subdir truetype, then you can add that to your
Xftconfig or $HOME/.xftconfig and XF86Config-4. Then use monotype.com as
the fixed width font. Has worked fine for me.
