I'm still looking into what it will take to make the OS realize the
font is a Fixed Width font.
I just have a bad case of "visual muscle memory" -- I've been using the
MPW font for so long in all my primary apps (MPW, BBEdit, CW, it's been
my fixed size font in some past e-mail apps, etc.) that I've had a hard
time trying to adjust to anything else.
I mean the MPW font looks just great in Xcode -- as long as it is not
anti-aliased, and since I can set the anti-aliased threshold in Xcode
only to 9 the problem is solved. It's just not solved "right".
It'd be nice if someone at Apple in the typography group could look at
the MPW font and see what it would take to be recognized as a Fixed
Width font so that apps like Xcode wouldn't anti-alias it by default
(much like Monaco 9).
