Ken, moving to blfs-dev for discussion.
I like the pdf files for seeing how the fonts are actually rendered.
Since I'm mono-lingual, I generally don't use a lot of different fonts.
Here is what I use:
konsole: DejaVu Sans Mono
serif : luxi serif
sans-serif : luxi serif
cursive : luxi serif
fantasy : luxi serif
monospace : DejaVu Sans Mono
That's pretty boring, but it seems to work for me.
