Thanks pepoluan. NB: I was previously using FixedSys. I'd never thought to look for alternative monospace fonts.
Hmm... why do many of you like Bitstream Vera Sans Mono? It seems rather blurry to me... On a note, is DejaVu Monospace exactly the same as Vera Sans Mono?
I keep switching back and forth between Lucida Console (now Dina) and Terminal, though... ASCII art looks good with the latter, heh

And you say FixedSys is ugly?! I was always a Courier New man, but I switched to FixedSys a little while back as I just liked the boldness/clarity of it. I do seem to be tending toward larger/heavier fonts, so it may really be my eyesight going!I also like Monaco and Andale Mono - both of which are similar to Bitstream Vera.A font like Crisp definately looks better on my Win2K with no ClearType.
How the fonts look like on my EditPlus:Consolas 9
Without clear-type, consolas looks very very badHere's with clear-type enabled:
I use Monospaced. Far from being the best, I agree, but I have been using it for so damn long on my jEdit, that I simply can't get used to any of those other fancy fonts.
It's difficult, but believe in yourself and it is possible
All the Proggy ones seemed a little small to me. My eyes aren't what they used to be...
