Whats wrong with Monospace (caps yours)? In case you've not heard the 
news, we (linux users, other platform unk, don't use them) have a font, 
called "hack" (announced several years ago) that is not only Monospaced 
but quite civilized to look at. I use it for editing any executable 
codes source language, and here in kmail too.
