You tell me which fonts are mono-spaced and I will change the table. Seems a fair division of labour to me.

Mat has sent a PM to Spiff59 regarding this ticket. Just awaiting for a response.

The four column headings that are links are displaying as black ona navy background (unreadable). I don't think "Lucida Sans Console" exists. The appendix entry should read just "Lucida Sans" (and is proportional). Neither does it appear that "Modern MS Sans Serif" ever existed, and that appendix entry should be deleted.

Consolas
Courier
Courier New
Lucida Console

It appears the oddball WST_ fonts may also be monospaced

Despite what is stated by two online references, the "small fonts" font in not monospaced.

So, my final answer is:

  1. Change the black on navy in the headings to make them readable.
  2. Rename "Lucida Sans Console" to just "Lucida Sans"
  3. Delete the "Modern MS Sans Serif" entry.

And the font lists break down as follows:

Monospaced Fonts
Consolas
Courier
Courier New
Lucida Console
All WST_ Fonts

Proportional Fonts
