If you only need support for English (you only need ASCII), and if they
insist on Arial, the most obvious solution is to switch to Vietnamese.
Make sure that you have support for Vietnamese installed (TeX Live
package vntex) and that the variable OSFONTDIR in
texmf-var/web2c/texmf.cnf points to c:/windows/fonts.  You need pdftex
then because dvips can't use TTF.


or simply

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
