No, the fonts in the link above are old, too. They might have a few more glyphs in the Roman ranges, but for all intents and purposes, they're still the "non-Unicode" versions. Alas, the only way to get Unicode MS fonts is to buy Office 2004 :-(

(Unless Apple happens to bundle them in 10.4 to replace the ancient versions bundled in 10.3 and below...early adopters let us know!)

There is a Sourceforge project for making the original Windows Web Core Fonts (Arial, Times New Roman and others) available for X systems. Actually, these fonts can't be downloaded from Microsoft anymore but they are available here: http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/font-tool/xf86-corefonts-0.2.1.tar.gz?download.

Download the tgz file and unpack. You'll get a number of .exe files for the fonts but fortunately these .exe files are simple .zip files repacked for automatic extraction. Drop the .exe files on StuffIt Expander and it will unpack them. Now you have a number of Windows .ttf files for each font (one file for each type style: regular, bold etc.).

These font files work perfectly in Mac OS X. They are Unicode fonts covering an extended Latin repertoire, Cyrillic and Greek.
