Recommended Fonts for Programming?fonts
I've really fallen in love with Droid Sans Mono.
What fonts do you use for programming, and for what language/IDE? I use Consolas for all my Visual Studio work, any other recommendations?
Best font for coding
Consolas a lot. This top-10 list is a good resource for others. It includes examples and descriptions.
Inconsolata (http://www.levien.com/type/myfonts/inconsolata.html) is a great monospaced font for programming. Earlier versions tend to act weird on OS X, but the newer versions work out very well.
When I got tired of Courier New I started to use Triskweline, and now I love it; despite being a bitmap font, it's quite nice, and it offers easily recognizable characters, especially for the most "problematic" ones (1/I/l, O/0, ...).
Moreover, it doesn't look like garbage as Consolas if ClearType is not available/disabled.
By the way, here are some other "alternative" programming fonts:
Look for linebreaks! Those are often the cause.
