Monospaced Font
A monospaced font, also called a fixed-pitch, fixed-width, or non-proportional font, is a font whose letters and characters each occupy the same amount of horizontal space.[1] This contrasts with variable-width fonts, where the letters and spacings have different widths. Monospaced fonts are customary on typewriters and for typesetting computer code.Contents1 Use in computers1.1 Use in art 1.2 Tabular figures2 Other uses 3 See also 4 References 5 External linksUse in computers[edit] Monospaced fonts were widely used in early computers and computer terminals, which often had extremely limited graphical capabilities.

Some systems allowed colored text to be displayed by varying the foreground and background color for each tile
