Use Helvetica instead. Microsoft assumed we wouldn't notice the
difference, and you can safely assume that the nitwits who prescribe such
a useless font won't notice the difference either. I even think you could
use times, lucida or minion pro and get away with it when the formatting
instructions are that crappy.
