That's what I ended up doing. I've tried all the font solutions, and
in the end found that what works best for me as a developer is to use
Accujen virtually everywhere - it comes as standard, it's sans serif
so it suits screens, and it's a bitmapped font so it's very sharp. The
letter forms change at different sizes and it doesn't have true
italics, just slanted letters, so no doubt it makes typographers cry,
but I find I can happily work with font sizes at 10pt for navigation
and 12pt for code without getting eyestrain.
