There is a project that I am starting that will end up producing documents that:

* are going to have a long life

* are accessible on a wide variety of computers (operating systems)

OK: OpenDocument format (ODF) is the no brainer for the editable format, with
HTML and PDF as printable formats.

What fonts to use is my question, ie which fonts are available everywhere ?
Fortunately all that is needed is one font with italic & bold varients.

My first thought was 'Times Roman', but I find that my OpenOffice 2.0 (CentOS 4.5) does not have it.

Drat! What should I choose ?
