[dev] [st] Font issues

I'm attempting to get st to use Dina as it's font. At first, I couldn't get
st to read the font at all (it would die upon launching, saying it couldn't
find the font), but I've had issues with Dina before - the CP1252
encoding was giving urxvt problems a while back so I re-encoded it
(to ISO8859-1) and tried again. Now st will launch - but the font looks
terrible.[1] I've uploaded my config.h[2], but the line that should be the
problem is:

#define FONT "-*-dina-medium-r-*-*-13-*-*-*-*-*-*-*"
#define BOLDFONT "-*-dina-bold-r-*-*-13-*-*-*-*-*-*-*"

That font declaration works fine in urxvt, though - so I'm lost. Are there
obvious changes that need to be made that I'm apparently missing? Is
there some difference in the way that suckless is doing this that is
affecting the way fonts are rendered or am I just doing it wrong?
