Thanks to all.

I think like you Greg. Bit-mapped fonts are not handled correctly in 
Wine. True Type fonts is not a problem.

I've done the procedure on the winehq website but it seems to not 
working for me !

I tried to convert .fon file into TTF file but I didn't found anything 
about this.

I think I'm going to create a TTF file like my .FON file !
With this it will be ok.

Thanks to all for your help on Wine.
