I think you need permission. I know that even if your company is a
development partner with them, there are many guidelines regarding the use
of their name, product, and/or logos.

Any ideas on this? OK or not OK? How can we find out?

** Legally it is not OK to make free with another company's
logotype in your manual. However, by including the logo
in a font that it distributes, Microsoft is virtually asking
you to do so. You might have a good case in court, but
you don't want to go there even with a good case, do you?
I sure don't, so forget I said anything...
