Inconsolata: A better monospace font

Inconsolata: A better monospace font

I’m trying out this new font for work; Raph Levien has done an excellent job… It looks great onscreen while using BBedit and really shines when printing out “code” or technical docs. Here’s the direct link to download the OTF file.

“Inconsolata… is a monospace font, designed for code listings and the like, in print. There are a great many “programmer fonts,” designed primarily for use on the screen, but in most cases do not have the attention to detail for high resolution rendering.”
