Fonts in Fluxbox

I am changing my fluxbox style manually and I have come to the font. It seems now to me that there are only *ONE* existing font. I have downloaded the artwiz-fonts and tried some fonts but there was no difference.

Is there anyway to see which fonts that fluxbox can use? Like a list or something (since I don't know the name of any font at all in Linux, how can I then know what to write in the style-conf?) and is there any easy way of extending these fonts, used by fluxbox?
