If you really need Verdana, you must use XeTeX. This is not officially
supported (yet) but there are workarounds. Search for XeTeX at the wiki

Bitstream Vera (or the extended version DejaVy) is the font used by
OpenOffice: like Verdana it is designed for good appearance in both
on-screen and printed documents. It is supported in LaTeX by the two
packages 'bera' (Vera serif) and 'arev' (sans serif with math support).
