When i need half a dozen characters to fit in with a logo, I usually find  
a site as this, Which allows you to get a preview of text in a font:  

Then take that image, and then turn it into a vector (Last time i just  
used http://vectormagic.com/, It blew it up into a much higher res bitmap  
for me).

Whilst its against the license of the font, When its just to make a few  
alterations to a logo for your purposes and a substituted font doesn't  
look right, I figure, Someone has already payed for the font usage with  
this logo.. the logo should've come with the font included..
