Hi - Thanks to Alan Munn who showed me how to use Arial fonts in plain 
Tex in TexShop, by using XeTex:

\arial Some text in Arial

However, on the mac, there is no Helvetica Italic, or Bold Italic. 
Instead, there is Helvetica Neue Italic and  Bold Italic.  Is there a 
way to get true Helvetica Italic fonts?  Just curious.  Thanks! - Mark
