First of all, xfce4.8 isn't supported anymore. Please update to at least 4.10.
Second, fonts are not handled by xfce, but your distribution. Install them via your package manager. Which leads us to:
Third, Helvetica as used by Microsoft is a proprietary font. I'm not sure you'll be able to use it. Ask your distributor if and how to implement them.
