I can't help but make a plug for Jibz's Dina Programming Font here, as i do believe it is hands down the best font for programming:

Years and years in a near stalkish relationship with the courier family . . . one originating well before I laid down any code . . . and then this stupid Dina font comes into the picture and ruins our happy home.   :-\

Thanks for the heads up on this font.  I found it akward to look at initially (coming from courier), but I can see the advantages and am getting used to it.

Great site.

If the Dina programming font has one disadvantage, then this that it is a bitmap font in FON format. So i can't use it with Linux/KDE.

Dina Font is so great that I change all my default font to it. Even in Notepad. :D

Thank you for creating this font and make it available!!!

I believe somebody did a linux conversion of the font, mouser probably knows
