Anonymous Pro

Anonymous Pro is a fixed-width font developed specifically for developers by Mark Simonson. Best of all - it's free under the Open Font License.

From it's home page:  "Characters that could be mistaken for one another (O, 0, I, l, 1, etc.) have distinct shapes to make them easier to tell apart in the context of source code."

I installed it on my Mac and set SQL Developer's default font to it, and the text is a little crisper than Courier, my previous default.

Anyone else have a favorite "coding" font?

My favourite is Andale Mono for the same reasons. I'll give yours a try and see which I prefer.
