True, Andale Mono was truly a gift when it's shipped with IE5. Having to be stuck for so long with Lucida Console or, ugh, Courier New, is an appalling situation.

I was an Andale Mono fanatic for years until one day I decided to get to know what those 'cool kids' were using when they pasted screenshots of pretty source codes with TextMate. It's Monaco, default monotype font from Apple.

I also had similar experience with the variable-width font. If you happened to see a default WordPress theme (Kubcrick) in a Mac, you'll notice the text is subtly more elegant. That's because the CSS uses Lucida Grande (or alternatively Verdana), again the default font in OS X. I believe these 2 fonts must be installed in every PC. And no, I'm not a fan boy Smile | :)
