Individually or as a group?

This replaces the font in all Style definitions that use any .shx fonts with Arial.ttf, if that's what you want:

(defun C:SHXtoArial (/ sty stydata)
  (while (setq sty (tblnext "style" (not sty))); step through Style table
    (if (wcmatch (cdr (assoc 3 sty)) "*.shx"); Style uses an .shx font
      (progn ; then -- replace that with arial.ttf
        (setq stydata (entget (tblobjname "style" (cdr (assoc 2 sty)))))
        (entmod (subst '(3 . "arial.ttf") (assoc 3 stydata) stydata))

It could be modified to apply to a list of specific Style names instead, or those of only selected Text/Mtext objects, or in other ways.
