I torched my fonts in Konqueror, how do I fix them?

I don't know how I did it, but somehow I broke my Konqueror fonts.

Now in this forum and elsewhere I have those annoying little boxes indicating an undefined charactor all over the place. They're just to the right of the smilies, there's a pile of them in the message icom selection area, and a scattering of them almost everywhere else I go.

I've tried setting all of the fonts in Konqueror to a variety of the various available fonts, but I can't get the boxes to go away.

Please help me.

The current encoding matches that on my second box (both are "Use language encoding") , and I've tried setting the fonts in the Konqueror browser appearance tab to exactly what my second box shows, and it doesn't fix my problem.

The charset is set to iso8859-I

My settings: Main Box, 2nd Box

Standard font: Utopia, helvetica
Fixed font: Courier 10 Pitch, courier
Serif font: Utopia, times
Sans Serif font: Utopia, helvetica
Cursive font: Utopia, helvetica
Fantasy font: Utopia, helvetica

My current settings are from another persons post for suggested Konqueror fonts.

When I try to set the fonts to the same settings as my second box, those fonts are not available, except for Courier. And the case is different, so it may or may not be the same font as the default. If I manually overwrite my current settings with the ones from my second box Konqueror doesn't recognize the new font names, when I re-open the configuration window, there appear to be no fonts selected.

I'm not even certain this is a font problem, its just that that's how it looks.

I tried to brute force it by trying a few different themes (under the assumption that the theme might change my setup to something that works) and that didn't help.
