9 Arial is simply the TrueType clone of Helvetica, which is part of the
10 htmldoc package. So, try using Helvetica instead, as it should
11 render a bit cleaner since it is a PostScript font. It will also allow
12 you to get rid of the MS fonts, eventually; all of the "core fonts"
13 have PostScript equivalents.
