i think that here we have the keys to understand what is happening...

- you want to use helvetica which is not a default font under windows

- you have installed it some way which we don't know

- you see in other applications but you don't tell us which ones

- you don't say where you got your helvetica fonts from... it may be a bad quality package from the internets?

- windows xp is an old system which didn't do that much automatically: you may need some work to get a specific font recognized by every application.

voilà... now it's your turn to offer some more insight on what is going on on your computer.
