You should be able to use any TTF with Rev.  The issue with different 
font metrics is a Windows problem, not a font problem.  This issue does 
not exist on the Mac, for example.

Arial is a good example of a TrueType font.  However, the printer 
metrics are still different from the screen metrics.  Go figure.

Two "real" solutions:  print a bitmap containing the text (slow and 
painful, resolution can be a killer in terms of both speed and 
quality), or switch to the Mac (not always an option when developing 
for other people to use, but hey, I had to suggest it anyway; it does 
work correctly on the Mac).
