I think it would be much better to promote the Bitstream Fonts.

Although the Microsoft Core fonts say they can be redistributed it has
been suggested that Microsoft did not necessarily have the right to
license them that way in the first place.

Anyone using Mozilla will likely have already installed the Bitstream
Fonts (at least I'm pretty sure that is where I got them from, possibly I
got them from OpenOffice.org).  We have the choice of a more free solution
available, I dont think there is any excuse to use the Microsoft Fonts.
