The solution I found was to create /etc/fonts/local.conf and put some
alias sections in it.  The helpful section looks like thus:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM "fonts.dtd">
<!-- /etc/fonts/local.conf file to configure system font access -->

    <match target="pattern">
            <test qual="any" name="family">
            <edit name="family" mode="assign">


This has corrected the issue I had with Firefox and partially with
Konqueror although it has certain areas that still use a blocky font. 
I don't use Konqy enough to matter, but I mention it for others.

I found this easier to implement than trying to sort out
userContent.css although I have mucked with it in the past.
