Even when using a monospaced font for input in the mathematica notebook interface, the width of a space (" ") is not equal to the width of the other characters. This is apparently not a problem of the font, as the width of a space is properly the same as that of other characters when the font is used in other applications. This behaviour is most annoying and makes for reduced legibility; is there any way to fix it? I am using the notebook interface of Mathematica 3.0 for Macintosh.
