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. -Rob (Wolfram Research)
