The msfonts package adds fonts that were created by Microsoft; no archlinux package ships them as far as I know. You might want to use these when editing old MS word docs in openoffice.

These fonts are free only for who have a Microsoft Windows license.

Fonts included are: Andale Mono, Arial, Arial Black, Comic, Courier New, Georgia, Impact, Lucida Sans, Lucida Console, Microsoft Sans Serif, Symbol, Tahoma, Times New Roman, Trebuchet, Verdana, Webdings and Wingdings.
