Not sure which font it uses, but if you copy Arial.ttf, Tahoma.ttf and Verdana.ttf from the fonts dir on a working Windows install you should be right.

For Steam to work you need tahoma.ttf you'll need to grab it from a windows box or find a suitable substitute.

You can find lots of good information about running Steam in wine at this location:

http://appdb.winehq.org/appview.php?iVersionId=1554

The Appdb at Wine HQ usually has the best information about getting a game running. Find the application in the database and then click on a version to get the info, try it out... play games.
