Inconsolata LGC Markup — Font

The popular Inconsolata font is a mono-spaced font commonly used by programmers, and it already provides a clear differentiation between most glyphs, such as O and 0 for example.

Others have added Greek and Cyrillic glyphs, along with bold and italic versions useful for syntax highlighting, thus forming the Inconsolata LGC font.

Text-document markup languages (such as , AsciiDoc, or markdown) have additional requirements. The ability to distinguish between the various kinds of quote marks and dashes becomes important. Most mono-spaced fonts do not clearly distinguish between each of these look-alike characters, as seen in Figure 52.
