Default Installing additional truetype fonts in Lenny fails partially (Iceweasel problem)


I try to install some additional truetype fonts in Lenny AMD64.
Everything seems fine but specifying antialiasing rules in
/etc/fonts/local.conf for those fonts won't work.
I copied some Windows fonts to a newly created folder
/usr/share/fonts/truetype/windows/ (Tahoma and Lucida Console). Then I
added to /etc/fonts/local.conf: (I also tried ~/.fonts/ and ~/.fonts.config)

<match target="pattern" name="family">
<test qual="any" name="family">
<test name="size" compare="more">
<test name="size" compare="less">
<edit name="antialias" mode="assign">
I tested a simple webpage in Iceweasel and this rule gets applied to all
fonts in Iceweasel. When I use "arial" instead of "tahoma" for example
it works as intended. As soon as I use Tahoma to specify the font it
won't work.
What do I have to do in order to install Tahoma properly so I can use
the above rule please? I tried all the Debian font install how-to's I
found already.
