Okay, what's wrong with this picture?
Each of those lines is from a terminal I have open, trying to find one of my monospace fonts that works correctly and I don't hate. My past favorite has been Monaco for the longest time, but recently (when, I can't quite remember) it seems that it likes to combine "l" and "/" into one symbol. So does Courier.
On the other hand, I have this font called Monaco CY which looks close enough to my favorite Monaco, until I discover that it mashes double dashes together.
This leaves me with only two monospace fonts on my ?PowerBook that don't mangle things (however minor) in the terminal. They are Courier New and Andale Mono, both of which I very much dislike.
So, though I've found one other person complain a bit about this, I can't seem to find any explanations why. Best I can figure is that I had to dump a slew of fonts onto my system recently in order to be able to do some client work, so maybe I clobbered an out-of-box version of my previously favored Monaco. But that doesn't make much sense, since I tried snagging a copy of Monaco from my girlfriend's iBook to no avail.
Anyone out there have a clue as to what this is? shortname=font_borken
