Another research question. Actually two.

Are many of you dropping the use of monospace font for directory and file names?

And a follow-on question -- if not, are you applying italics for variable portions of the names on top of the monspace font or are you using straight italics (sans the monospace)? I assume that if you're using straight italics for variables in code, you're using the same convention for variables in directory and file names. Unless you've dropped the monospace font for these, of course.
