Fonts and accents / umlauts

I've the following problem:

The users open ms-word docs with openoffice and they lack all characters
with umlaut or accent (like öäüèéà). It seems that many fonts that came
with ubuntu do not support these characters and that oo replaces the
font available in windows (often "Arial") with one of these fonts (like
"helvetica"). Trying to find a solution I looked at the openoffice help
and saw that even there non-ascii chars are replaced with little boxes.

What's the easiest way to remove all fonts without umlauts/accents?
