If I were to build a hoizonatal scrolling text thing (before anyone says
anything, I know horizontal text scrolling maybe considered a device from
the Devil's workshop, but I really do have a good use for it), what fixed
width/monospaced font would look half decent and perform identically on
Windows, Mac OS, and Mac OSX (readability is the main factor)?
