In the font menu in the replacement fonts there is one called 'Interface User'

It is an alias for 'Andale Sans UI' and both should do the same thing. It was 
added in a recent openoffice (last release before 1.0 i believe) so that it 
was no longer a 'hidden' option.

Ahh, i thought it would use the system freetype library. Is the one in OO 
compiled with the same options (i.e ignoring apples patent nonsense) as the 
system library? It seems to render fonts slightly worse than the system 
freetype, they look more blurred to me.
