[PySide] conforming fonts between platforms

Hi all,

I am facing the challenge I'm sure many of you have had to deal with before:

I need to make sure that the font used in my application looks as 
similar as posisble between windows, linux and osx.

I am currently using 12 point Helvetica, which turns into a 16 pixel 
high Sans Nimbus L on my linux box messing up my custom widget's layouts.

What is the best practise here?
Supposedly it is possible to compile a font into a resource which would 
ensure almost identical results, right?! Has anybody ever done this before?
