for a good font of your choice go to DAFONT.com

and to change your default font,

In your memory card,
E:\Resource\
create a folder called Fonts
then make FOUR copies of the font you want, exact same copies, (ctrl+c , ctrl+v) and rename all four of them as follows:
s60snr.ttf
s60ssb.ttf
s60tsb.ttf
S60ZDIGI.ttf
Place these in the Fonts directory.

Restart your phone.
Font changed!

want to go back to the old one?
connect phone to pc, delete Fonts directory. Old one back again.

This is tested on my hacked 5800 red v20. not sure if works on unhacked, but i think it will. try it.

all comes down to the font bro, if the font you used doesn't have the characters the phone's looking for, it will show big white boxes.. like the icon beside the profile name in the home screen. I was on tahoma too, but shifted back to default font because of some characters missing. we can't do much about that sadly.. :(
