In the font selection box are these TrueType fonts marked with a TT
If not, you are fonts rendered by X and wine is not able to do much
sophisticated things with it. The most easy way to use your fonts with
wine rendering them is to copy the *.ttf font files to your
C:\Windows\Fonts\ directory.

If that does not solve the problem then send me the zipped output of the
program when you start wine with:

WINEDEBUG=+commdlg wine ... &> wine.log

(replace the dots with your program and arguments)
