monotype corsiva typeface on Windows Vista

I have a question about some strange behavior I'm seeing (tested on two
different boxes running Pidgin 2.3.1 on Vista and on Windows XP).
I'm trying to set my outgoing formatting font to "Monotype corsiva" (a
cursive truetype font), but doing so changes the font to something
definitely *not* monotype corsiva (i.e. some sans-serif font). However,
if I set the font of the UI (changing "Font" instead of "Default
Formatting") to Monotype corsiva, it successfully changes the font (as
it appears to me, but not outgoing) to monotype corsiva (which, of
course, has no effect on the outgoing message). Note that I can receive
messages (from someone running AIM) that are in Monotype corsiva.
From some limited testing of picking random fonts, Monotype corsiva
appears to be the only one that doesn't work; however, I didn't go
through every font, so that isn't in any way conclusive.
Has anyone seen this behavior, or can anyone offer a guess as to the
cause of the behavior I'm seeing here?
