That's the case for me with Gmail-in-Firefox, but with MRAB's
substitutions it becomes genuinely indistinguishable:

аnd                 еlіf                іmpοrt              rеturn
аs                  еlsе                іn                  trу
аssеrt              еxcеpt              іs                  whіlе
brеаk               fіnаllу             lаmbdа              wіth
clаss               fοr                 nοt                 уіеld
cοntіnuе            frοm                οr
dеf                 glοbаl              pаss
dеl                 іf                  rаіsе

Fonts with incomplete glyph sets will still look wrong, of course.
