You're lucky. Most people really like Rotis.

I found a number of great free typefaces on http://www.fontsquirrel.com .
For several of them, they even include an "@font-face" kit.

If you have font files that may be licensed for web use (say, your own
commissioned design), you can upload them to the squirrel site and generate
your own @font-face kit. The additional benefit of the generator is that it
can also build a "cufon" kit, which is another javascript based
font-replacement technology used in web pages.

Of course, I can't speak as to whether these would work for sure in compiled
help files. There may be some glitches preventing javascript and external
font files, for example. But I see no problem with incorporating them in
other help formats, such as Eclipse Infocenter, JavaHelp, and Adobe AIR
Help.
