Install MS TrueType fonts (copy/paste .ttf files from a windows system) 
and you are done.

For people working in design business, arbitrarily font replacing/
substitution is a "no-no". When a designer say "this block of text has to 
be Arial, 8pt" as soon as you replace the font with Tahoma (for example)  
it could render the whole document in a wrong way.
