      Hear hear! I too cast my vote for FixedSys. I'll stop short of
      saying "it looks cool", but in my opinion it's clean-looking
      (because it's sans-serif), its "pen width" is heavy enough to
      see the letters clearly but not so heavy that the letters look
      smudged, and its height-to-width ratio is just right (so it's not
      visually squished vertically or horizontally). I find FixedSys
      to be fully workmanlike.

      As for fixed vs. proportional, if I really need the more elegant
      design elements offered by a proportional font, I'll copy and
      paste from NoteTab into MS Word, or just type it up from scratch
      in Word.

      I've always thought of NoteTab as a "text editor", and not so
      much a "word processor" (although that distinction can be seen
      to be blurred somewhat), and certainly not a page layout program.
      As a text editor, it's excellent. Better than excellent, even ...

      ... although it *would* be made quite better with Back and
      Forward history buttons *AND* the associated standard keystrokes
      for file navigation, so we could finally stop playing Where's Waldo
      with those insane musical-chair file tabs. Hah! Couldn't resist
      throwing that in! My #1 NoteTab pet peeve. Hah! Fix it, Eric! :-)
