** clear now :-)
> - 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

** And interresting to know.
> - you don't say where you got your helvetica fonts from... it may be a bad quality package from the internets?

** Or bad font format, even if some apps can read them or like openoffice using its own fonts folder...
> - 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.
