3857 is the standard projection for rendering web maps. If ArcGIS has 
problems with it, try 900913 which is an older non-standard name for the 
same projection.

3785 is another old name, which EPSG replaced with 3857. The three above 
are equivalent, but http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/EPSG:3857 has 
more information.

It really shouldn't matter what projection they're in, as any analysis 
software should be able to reproject at will, and any rendering will 
either be it or in some local projection that can't be used globally.
