Most mudding clients will come with a font pre-set. Often this will be a thin, spidery font, or a blocky, brick-like font. Here is one endeavour to display a good selection of monospace (all the letters the same width) fonts that are easy on the eyes, and suitable for mudding.

Truetype Fonts

Andale Mono

Bitstream Sans Mono & Deja Vu Sans Mono

For most end-user purposes, these two fonts are the same. Free as in software. Available from [1].

Consolas

Comes with Windows Vista and MS Office 2007(?). Like a version of Courier New that doesn't make your eyes hurt and your spider lustful.
