It's not completely clear what you're asking. If you mean "how do you
deal with indentation and lining up stuff in non-ms font" then
indentation (particularly semantic indentation like in python) is
always done in spaces so that's not a problem. You can't do things
like line up


so that the zoo lines up under the opening bracket, so I don't do that
:-) (And I don't find I miss it.) The basic reason I use a prop font
is that I generally find the biggest problems in my programming is
mismatches between things defined/used and other inconsistencies and
generally with a prop font I can get more on the screen to correlate
between files.
