See an excellent article by Olav Martin Kvern in the U&lc online
magazine, focusing on what makes a font good for setting code
(http://www.itcfonts.com/itc/ulc/digwemust.html).

(I recommend all of Olav's articles - in past issues of the printed
version of U&lc, in online U&lc issues as well as in Adobe Magazine).
