and vimppc told me "guifont=courier:h12" so I tried
and it worked fine. If you can figure out what other fixed-width fonts
you have installed, you should be able to use any of them. On other platforms,
brings up a window for choosing a font, but this does not seem to be
implemented on the mac. If you care, various people have
recommendations for where to find other fixed-width fonts, but Courier
is good enough for me.

I recommend getting ProFont. It's a replacement for Courier, and it is
much more programmer-friendly (e.g. zeroes have slashes, capital 'i' has
wider horizonal bars and is easier to distinguish from '1').

Thanks all for the tips; even using ProFont 24 the text is pretty
