One of our [Rotterdam
reporters](http://pzwart.wdka.hro.nl/mdma/staff/jjfcramer/) made us
[Inconsolata](http://www.levien.com/type/myfonts/inconsolata.html), a
monospaced font designed by Ghostscript maintainer [Raph
Levien](http://levien.com/). Levien offers an OTF version, plus 'raw'
fontforge files on his webpage.

> First and foremost, Inconsolata is a humanist sans design. I strove
> for the clarity and clean lines of Adrian Frutiger's Avenir (the
> lowercase "a", in particular, pays homage to this wonderful design),
> but also looked to Morris Fuller Benton's Franklin Gothic family for
> guidance on some of my favorite glyphs, such as lowercase "g" and "S",
> and, most especially, the numerals. <small>(Ralph Levien)</small>
