Inconsolata is my first serious original font release. It is a monospace font, designed for printed code listings and the like. There are a great many "programmer fonts, " designed primarily for use on the screen, but in most cases do not have the attention to detail for high resolution rendering.
Inconsolata draws from many inspirations and sources. I was particularly struck by the beauty of Luc(as) de Groot's Consolas, which is his monospaced design for Microsoft's Vista release. This font, similar to his earlier TheSansMono, demonstrated clearly to me that monospaced fonts do not have to suck.
Inconsolata font contains 289 defined characters and 213 unique glyphs. The font contains characters from the following unicode character ranges: Basic Latin (93), Latin-1 Supplement (96), Latin Extended-A (63), Latin Extended-B (2), Spacing Modifier Letters (11), General Punctuation (13), Superscripts and Subscripts (1), Currency Symbols (1), Letterlike Symbols (1), Arrows (2), Mathematical Operators (1), Control Pictures (1), Private Use Area (1).
