See here if the image link broke.

  • I have a set of DIN stencils somewhere which produce that font, for use in engineering drawings (The image shows a monospaced version; my stencils are not). Commented Jan 30, 2014 at 11:03

    Wow, you are right, that is a headache! What is tripping me up is the open 4 and the 1 without feet. It is pretty close to Droid sans mono... damieng.com/blog/2007/11/14/droid-sans-mono-great-coding-font

  • if someone looks for a solution: pay attention to "t" which looks like a cross, i - has very special upper serif, C ends are straight, middle part of W is lower then external parts....

Looks like FF Isonorm Monospaced Regular. Initially sold by FontFont but not seemingly available anymore. Typekit has a similar looking font but its spacing is proportional and you will find differences in some glyphs because of this (e.g. i, j, etc.).

  • Be kind, show a preview of the font please.

  • @WELZ Yes looking for a replacement but doesn't seem to be sold by a foundry anymore. I'll just remove it if I don't find anything official
