[Wine] Help with fonts

I recently changed to a new computer and reinstalled linux.  I'm 
not happy with the current fonts and I see that the whole fonts 
area has been revamped, so any old notes I have are obsolete.  
Can anyone help me out?

The first and major issue is that when an installation program I 
am running tries to display "C:\Program Files" it comes out 
looking like CWProgram Files.

Having run with WINEDEBUG=+font and analysed the 4.3 million 
lines of output I see the following:

The request is to use a "HELV" (-11 0 0 ..2 1) font.
The request is handled by an instance of the "Baekmuk Headline" 
"Regular" font.
The original creation of that font (Helv -11...)
a. Didn't find it in the cache
b. Substituted Helv to MS Sans Serif
c. Chose the Baekmuk Headline Regular for that
d. Gave a trace message about "can't find the table" while 
loading the file
e. caches that font.

This, to me, is not what I would expect when there are 252 
Helvetica fonts on the computer.

A. Can anyone tell me how I can look at a particular ttf file and 
see what characters are in it (so that I can see if it has a \ 
that looks like a W)
B. Can anyone tell me how, given a font (selected through 
xfontsel), I can find out what is implementing it (e.g. which 
ttf file it is in).
