Thanks for the pointer. I realised I already had that setting ticked, 
the user-interface is rather hard to read in the OOo Options, but I was 
kind of just putting up with that as I can still read it.

I read that useful wiki page, and came to this:

Couldn't get Arial -> Bitstream Vera Sans   substitution to work. In the 
end I decided i'll have to make a compromise and install the 
msttcorefonts package. I won't send out documents in Arial, but at least 
I will be able to view them when people send me them!

Thanks for the help, Jon
