Recently I raised a question on meta.linguistics.stackexchange about which fonts are used to render text formatted as
code. Briefly: linguists often need to add diacritics to distinguish speech sounds, and diacritics don't align properly in some typefaces (the question has a couple screenshots if you're curious).
Liberation Mono was the culprit in my case, whereas DejaVu Sans Mono does better, but is lower in the CSS
font-family list for the
code class. Could we reverse the order of those two typefaces in the SE CSS? I haven't done a thorough testing of the other typefaces higher in the list to see how well they handle diacritics, but if that's a condition for getting this changed I'm willing to do so (at least for the ones that are free).
