Fonts for coders: 2

Jeff Atwood gives an update on monospace fonts for software development. He presents screen shots of the same piece of specimen code viewed with ten different fonts, popular and more obscure. His favorite is Consolas, and I have to admit that I could be tempted to give up Bitstream Vera Sans Mono for it. Consolas slashes zeroes and it puts an aggressive hook on the comma so that you can separate colons from semicolons.
