[R] Using the Arial font in the plot function.

I would like to ensure that all the text in my plot is in the arial font, like in excel and word. I have been saving my graphics to a file using the png() function, and have tried the postscript() function. In the documentation I have not been able to find a way of changing the family argument to an arial font. Does it exist? How would I go about creating a png or ps graphic using Arial? Thank you.  

Here is the code.  

par(family= what?)
plot(1,1, main='Main Title')  

or  

postscript('C:/Plot1.ps', family=what?)  

plot(1,1, main='Main Title')  

dev.off()
