still having problem with font-families !!!

I am using Amaya 8.2 public binary distribution on a windows 98 platform!
And still having problems with font settings...

For example using CSS style i set the font-family to "westminster"  which is
a truetype font on my machine. I picked this font only as its design is so
different that i can tell immediately if it is being used. there is no intent to
  imply anyone else may have it... This is attachment #1
MSIE, mozilla and opera use it ok ... Amaya does not ...

I have modified fonts.win  and the initial font-type works ok !!
However the headers do not agree with those used for other font.xxx 
files --- as an example #1 is declared as east europe  where in fonts.gl
it is declared as west europe (latin 1)....   perhaps some editting needed
for the next distribution.   See attachment #2

There is no help documentation on setting default fonts, the fonts.xxx file
or the use of the Fonts folder ... an html document for this should exist and
tie in to the configurations section of help .... 

Now that i can verify that defaults can point at truetype fonts,  how is it that
CSS style fonts can not be set in the same manner ....  

And way down the road is a gui approach to setting default font types... --
