Fonts in X apps

Every time I installed linux, I have installed all the
extra fonts, that get listed in the installation menu.

These are the fonts that have been installed.

100dpi/    PEX/       Type1/     misc/
75dpi/     Speedo/    cyrillic/

I have never been able to use more than few for the
xterms. In X-application, some work and some don't.
Typically, I try to use the -fn option of an Xapp and
use the name listed in "fonts.alias" file. Most of them
don't work.

Is there any FAQ, as to how to get the most out of the
fonts in X? I am serious limited with the choice of fonts
for my Web pages. What part of X configuration did I miss for fonts?
