Hehehe, I didn't say I had "ugly" fonts (mine are truetype fonts too), I just
wanted to point out that the treeview uses non standard fonts which is, well, odd.

I believe the best is to leave fonts to their defaults. I guess it's not a good
idea to use separate fonts unless strictly necessary.

But yes, I know how to set a font for a given widget. 

        PangoFontDescription *desc;
        desc = pango_font_description_from_string (font);
        if (desc) 
	    gtk_widget_modify_font (widget, desc);
