AFAIK, it's not easy to define specific fonts in web pages -- they must be present on a user's system, and that's not easy to guarantee across platforms and systems. On my system/browser (Firefox on WinXP), the web page appears in Times New Roman with a microscopic difference between the two characters. (That's probably that same pixel difference that Glen sees :) If you use the traditional Courier (New) for reading news, there is no difference between a 1 and an l. Given this, I don't know how Courier could remain the default font for so long -- especially among computer people. You can use for example the Bitstream Vera Sans Mono instead of Courier. See e.g. http://www.dafont.com/font.php?file=bitstream_vera_mono Unluckily I don't find this font as readable as Courier. They really should alter the 1 in Courier to be different from the l... :) In Windows, there's also Terminal, but it isn't TrueType and AFAIK doesn't support many Unicode code points. Any other suggestions? Gerhard
