i usually display my source code in 'courier'. but i copied and pasted from vs to a word windwo and there is no option in the fonts box 'courier', although there is 'courier new'.

whats so special about courier that ms guys left it out?

heh, nobody has answered yet - but i think i got one.
i worked with "power point 2003" today, there "courier" is availible. making the presentation i had to make the text a bigger size - man it looks so ugly with courier. you could even count the pixels. using "courier new" font smoothing was used.
so, "courier new" is a true-type-font and "courier" seems to be a bitmap-font, with looks good at its normal size, but ugly when making it bigger.

i see , so its probably cause courier isnt a true type font.

thanks anyway :)
