I can generate PDF documents and they look good on acrobat reader. However, when I import the PDFs in Pagemaker 7.0 (on windows2K), I get an error message saying it does not recognize the Helvetica font.

I got this from ?pdf:

the font family to be used, one of "AvantGarde", "Bookman", "Courier",
"Helvetica", "Helvetica-Narrow", "NewCenturySchoolbook", "Palatino" or "Times". Note the other specifications allowed for postscript are not available.

There in no mention of Arial. Is there a way to force R to use the Arial family?

I'm on win2K
