The big brown fox jumped over the lazy dogs.
Unfortunately Menlo is not a supported font for Google Docs. There is a nice alternative that could get the job done called Inconsolata, and since it’s a Google font it’s really simple to access in docs:
Here’s how Google describes it:
It is a monospace font, designed for printed code listings and the
like. There are a great many “programmer fonts,” designed primarily
for use on the screen, but in most cases do not have the attention to
detail for high resolution rendering. Inconsolata draws from many
inspirations and sources. I was particularly struck by the beauty of
Luc(as) de Groot’s Consolas, which is his monospaced design for
Microsoft’s Vista release. This font, similar to his earlier
TheSansMono, demonstrated clearly to me that monospaced fonts do not
have to suck.
To access this font in Google docs, click the dropdown menu to reveal the document font list and click the More Fonts… option at the bottom of the list:
Then just search for “Inconsolata” and add it to your list by clicking the font name. Click OK to append the selected fonts to your document font list:
