I would have left it at courier, but from my tests, Courier is not  
the same font on each platform.  There were notable differences in  
size and shape across platforms.

This is the last hang-up, the current nightly build is pixel exact on  
all the measures I did, except on Mac OS X the font is 1 pixel lower  
in the object box.  I think I can fix that too.
