I spent some time in TLC2 last weekend. I also spent some time reading  
about XeLaTeX and how I might use it to gain access to the ugly Arial  
font. :)

What I find interesting is that there is no clear path (at least not  
one apparent to me) through this maze for the individual relatively  
new to font-use in LaTeX.

Just so it's clear, I'm not trying to be annoying; I'm just trying to  
learn something new.

Thanks again...
