For a website project, I need to find a good looking web-font that fits the following parameters:
- it must be a “slab serif”
- it must be “monospace”
Keeping my question short and simple: Which monospaced “slab serif” fonts can be recommended?
A search yielded a list of possible alternatives, top of which is Courier.
While it may be ubiquitous and not particularly interesting, it’s a native font on every [? almost every] OS and present on most systems. Thus it will be rendered well without additional work on your part.
The other fonts listed there which satisfy the requirement for slab serifs are, along with a number of overtly “typewriter” fonts, MVB Fantabular, Blackbox Mono Serif and Lucida Typewriter Serif. Any of them are likely to work as web fonts.
Google Web Fonts includes Cutive Mono which is very similar to Courier.
