i now found out where my "ugly" fonts in firefox comes for some pages.

one page had this defined in css
font:11px verdana,geneva,lucida,'lucida grande',arial,helvetica,sans-serif;

and busybox.net has:

and both make firefox to use bitmap fonts from the packages

removing those packages (and having like ttf-dejavu installed) i
havent found any webpage that would get any bitmap fonts assigned

so, anyone know how/what decides which fonts firefox gets ? (i have
all i can set in firefox settings to dejavu)

and on same note, what packages even need xorg-fonts-100dpi and
xorg-fonts-75dpi ?
cant we replace those with ttf-dejavu in the xorg package ?


ps. no, the solution is _not_ to install ms-fonts :P
