Consolas Font Pack for Visual Studio 2005

Although this little gem has been released for sometime, I'd thought I'd post a link to the new font named Consolas.

Consolas is a new font created by Microsoft designed for ClearType and is intended for use in programming environments.

It is supported on XP and later. Installing the pack will set VS 2005 to use Consolas by default. Not too sure about previous versions.

Here are a couple of screen shots I created to illistrate the differences - although I admit it is very difficult to see the difference as Blogger has resized the images! I will be hosting my blog on my own server very soon once I have finished building it:

Courier New

Here is the new Consolas font:
