To clarify part of your question, Mathematica does not have some
special version of Courier that contains a glyph for the \[Rule]
character.  Mathematica uses the standard Courier font but it knows
that Courier does not have a glyph for this character and
Mathematica1Mono does.  So it internally substitutes Mathematica1Mono
for Courier when it draws this character.
