Programming Fonts

Programmers have very particular font needs. A font for programming must be monospaced, extremely readable, and must sharply distinguish between similar characters, such as capital O and zero and the number 1, capital I, and lowercase L. In addition, good programming fonts allow you to view more lines of code on screen at once.

I preferred Courier New myself so far, but Keith Devens has a long list with other suggestions of fonts for programming.
