I would like to have a font that have same width of every character.

For example, a W width is wider than the i in most of the font...Is there any font have the same size for that?

There are too many to list. Simply search for "monospaced", "fixed-width", or "non-proportional" font, and you would be able to find many examples. –  Ananda Mahto Dec 4 '12 at 5:41
o..Thz..I don't know the keyword: monospaced –  Ted Wong Dec 4 '12 at 6:20
Fun fact - the code button you used to highlight the "W" and "i" in your question switches to a monospaced font... so the W and i right there in your question are in a font that is making them have the same width :) Look at the CSS for it using inspect element in your browser and in 'font-family' you get a big long list of monospaced fonts: Droid Sans Mono',Consolas,Menlo,Monaco,Lucida Console,Liberation Mono,DejaVu Sans Mono,Bitstream Vera Sans Mono,Courier New,monospace,serif –  user568458 Dec 5 '12 at 2:23

Most computers will have one of these two:

  • Courier
  • Consolas
