The answer that seemed to work for me was -
Put this in your .cshrc for CDE or .xinitrc if running openwindows:

xset +fp /usr/openwin/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi/
xset fp rehash

Thanks Tim Fritz. Eddy Keller,James Hsieh and Jim McVey!!

All of the other answers are greatly appreciated as well, as there are
many other ways to accomplish the same thing

i.e. -

I have the following script that runs from my .cshrc file:

# Setup environment for Netscape
# dan penrod 10/03/97
if ( $?PATH ) then
setenv PATH /usr/local/netscape:$PATH
setenv PATH /usr/local/netscape
setenv MOZILLA_HOME /usr/local/netscape
setenv XKEYSYMDB /usr/local/netscape/XKeysymDB
#-- If you have trouble with DNS, uncomment...
#Turn of Type 1 fonts to work around Solaris 2.6 bug
xset -fp /usr/openwin/lib/X11/fonts/Type1/ >& /dev/null
