Does someone know what this font is?

  • @Brendan It seems to me like he is trying to recreate the php.net syntax highlighting in his coding application... or partially anyways..

It's called Fira Mono [Examples] [Download]

font-family: "Fira Mono","Source Code Pro",monospace;

Fira Mono

The letterspacing issue is also fixed with CSS:

letter-spacing: -0.0625rem;
word-spacing: -0.125rem;

  • Hi, thanks for the font, can you check the question I updated and if you have any suggestion?

  • It's unlikely that a text editor can alter character spacing. Commented Jun 27, 2014 at 11:46
