You can use KChmPart, which is part of package kdevelop-plugins. I don't know how well it will work with GNOME, though. As for the font problem you have, you may have noticed that many new programs use TrueType fonts and display perfectly on screen. Older programs still use bitmap fonts which are quite crappy. Old programs which rely on GTKv1 (a lot) can be more or less fixed by playing with gtk-theme-switch (in the package of the same name). Also, search for packages named xfonts-* for additional fonts.
