James Duncan Davidson on the Bitstream Vera Sans Mono font

November 10, 2007

Ever since I found it, Bitstream Vera Sans been my favorite monospaced font and I use it in all my text editor windows when working with monospaced text. The best part about it is that when you kick up your font size a bit—say to 12pt, which is what I usually run to ease up on the eyestrain—it just gets better.

I've been using this fixed-width font for years, especially for coding, but am now trying out (and loving!) Inconsolata, which I found through the comment thread.
