Smile installing ttf fonts in debian(etch)....

I tried a how to for installing fonts which involves steps roughly as

First i downloaded Manorama.ttf(india malayalam lang) from
 then for present user,

 $cd ~.fonts
 $mkdir matweb
 Copy Matweb ttf font into this directory

 $ttmkfdir > fonts.dir
 $ttmkfdir > fonts.scale
 $xset fp+ $HOME/.fonts/manorama
 $xset fp+ rehash
 Now do an
 $fc-cache -fv
 Next step is to add the fontpath to our /etc/X11/xorg.conf last of font paths
like this:
> FontPath        "/home/prakash/.fonts/manorama"
 Do a
> $fc-cache -fv

For manorama font this steps worked..but in Mathrubhumi site it showed some
weird looking malayalam.. if i empty cache it works...again fails after refreshing or reloading current page... help if u know please
