Description of problem:
In FC3 and before nautilus fonts: showed the available fonts, and clicking on a font opened the gnome-font-viewer with this font. However in FC4, this doesn't work anymore. Instead clicking on the font Aachen opens an error dialog with

This procedure does however work on the actual font directory, e.g,
nautilus /usr/share/fonts/TTF

2. (double-)click on a font

Nautilus also can't show "Bitstream Charter, Bold Italic" font.
It gives the following message:
Cannot open Bitstream Charter, Bold Italic
The filename "Bitstream Charter, Bold Italic" indicates that this file is of
type "font". The contents of the file indicate that the file is of type
"PostScript document". If you open this file, the file might present a security
risk to your system.

Do not open the file unless you created the file yourself, or received the file
from a trusted source. To open the file, rename the file to the correct
extension for "PostScript document", then open the file normally. Alternatively,
use the Open With menu to choose a specific application for the file.
