Since when? I've always coded, in all languages I've ever used, under the
assumption that the reader will view it with a fixed-pitch (or whatever the
proper term is) font. I assumed everyone else did, too. I still assume that,
in fact -- noone has ever come up to me and said "hey, that code you wrote
looks ugly in Comic Sans MS".
(I like well-typeset code in print though. Bjarne Stroustrup uses an elegant
system for C++ code, where identifiers and strings are in Times italic,
operators in Courier, and so on.)
 Too young for punch cards.
