Nice find on the Tahoma typo :-)

I don't have a linux desktop at hand to test the aforementioned browsers, could you provide a screenshot of the problem? I'm a bit puzzled by the solution too, I can understand that the font choice leads to shitty rendering on some platforms and I'm willing to try to improve it, I feel switching to a monospaced font altogether is a bit too radical though.

the proposed change in application.css affects only the wiki-edit textarea. Samples attached.

  • textarea.jpg - wiki-edit with monospaced
  • textarea1.jpg - wiki-edit with a proportional font

Clarification: font-family monospaced should use the default browser or system font for monospaced fonts. in my case is this courier.
