Font Question

I'm feeling lazy and I know all y'all know shit like this.....

I need a standard font (i.e. in MSO if poss/easy/free to obtain) in which the M and W (upper case) are mirror images. Suggestions, pls?

Trebuchet MS is close, but W is slightly wider.

thanks, I was using Calibri, The Metafilter Thread came up with Century Gothic, so I compared those with Trebuchet and i think your suggestion was best for that issue, although the W is still slightly wider. Unfortunately I also needed the S to have rotational symmetry, for which Trebuchet is the worst of the three. hmmmm.... Thanks for your help, my head was starting to spin, ot really helped to narrow the field. I may even just mix and match

Yes, this may be my most evil word search yet.
