Background

Anonymous Pro is a family of four fixed-width fonts designed especially with coding in mind. Characters that could be mistaken for one another (O, 0, I, l, 1, etc.) have distinct shapes to make them easier to tell apart in the context of source code.

Anonymous Pro also features an international, Unicode-based character set, with support for most Western and European Latin-based languages, Greek, and Cyrillic. It also includes special “box drawing” characters if you need them.

Anonymous Pro is based on an earlier font, Anonymous, which was a TrueType version of Anonymous 9, a freeware Macintosh bitmap font developed in the mid-’90s by Susan Lesch and David Lamkins. The bitmap version was intended as a more legible alternative to Monaco, the mono-spaced Macintosh system font.
