You will need to provide far more context for this question.

What are you using to display your text? HTML (eg a web browser)? Then the 
<font> tag might help you. Some other document format such as roff or LaTeX? A 
terminal?  If this is possible it will be entirely terminal dependent. A GUI of 
some kind, such as Tk or Qt?  You will need to consult its documentation for 
its text widgets.

No, I *dream* about writing code in a proportional serif font.
It's much more exciting than my real life.
