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:

"Helvetica", "Helvetica-Narrow", "NewCenturySchoolbook", "Palatino" or 
"Times". Note the other specifications allowed for postscript are not 

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