Don't think I mentioned here but the real fix is a small addition to /etc/fonts/fonts.conf
Code:

<!-- Reject bitmap fonts -->
 <selectfont>
  <rejectfont>
   <pattern>
     <patelt name="scalable"><bool>false</bool></patelt>
   </pattern>
  </rejectfont>
 </selectfont>


This ensures that ttf fonts...whatever you add or don't add, get used...particularly noticeable with firefox...throw in those missing serif and monospace fonts and the picture is complete. I assume something went wrong with the fontconfig compilation as puppy 2 does not need this to display correctly. Oh this took me some hours to find the reason and the cure was thanks to nimblex/slax.

hope this helps and sooths and reduces forum posts
