[csw-users] Problem with Seamonkey 1.1.6 (at least) fonts

I am new to Solaris and Unix in general so please forgive me if I don't
seem clear.

I am using Solaris 10 x86 08/07.  I got Seamonkey 1.1.6 from Blastware,
it installed fine and is running reliably.  However, I am having one
small problem- it's not drawing all of the fonts correctly.  There
appears to be at least one font set it isn't antialiasing so it looks
really bad.  Here is a page (www.abxzone.com) displaying the problem
very clearly:


On the left is Firefox that comes with Solaris 10.  On the right
is Seamonkey.  They are both running at the same time, side by side.
Some other sites I have tried look like this, some will have some fonts
antialiased and some not.  I am noticing vBulletin forum sites have more
problems than others, which may be a clue since they tend to use a lot
of the same fonts.

I don't have any other CSW apps installed to really test against, but I
have a feeling one of the various dependencies that handles fonts either
doesn't come with a suitable font or broke somewhere during the install.
  Anyone else see this or have any idea how to fix it?  Ideally if I
could either fix/install the problem font or point Seamonkey to the
fonts Solaris uses by default that would be good.
