Kindle Monospaced Fonts: Fail
~~A mixed bag:~~
The Kindle has Greek characters, but not complete math (in the image below, there should be a ⇔ \<=> character).
~~It converts Courier (at least) to monospaced, but does not auto-convert Consolas:~~
As you can see, neither the Courier nor the Consolas work (just look at the difference in space taken by ||||| and mmmmm).
This is a PDF conversion, ~~so it’s possible that a different authoring route (perhaps Kindle specific) is necessary to get monospaced fonts~~ (See update below…) . Bad news for programmers:
Update: Ah hah!
I managed to trigger the Kindle monospaced font by converting from HTML and using the \<pre> tag:
More bad news, though: using an explicit HTML \<font face=”Courier”> tag does not work.
