Steven,

The fonts used since Mathematica 4.2 have changed.  They are named Mathematica* 
instead of Math*.  The fonts used MathML pages are from Mathematica 4.1.

You can download the 4.1 Math* fonts here (in your case, use the last link. 
Others should choose the appropriate link based on your OS)
