That is true. Our official font is Arial where I work. I cheat and use  
CM Bright, which is sanserif and most people can't tell the  
difference. My boss is so happy to have a hydrologist on staff that he  
puts up with my funky tools.

If I absolutely had to use Arial, I'd learn to use XeTeX. (Love the  
palindrome for free!) I think it can do it.
