Lightbulb Use of monospaced font recommended for passphrases

Some time ago, my younger sister had a problem connecting to her wireless network, which turned out to be interpreting a lower case L as an upper case I (or vice versa) because the font used for wireless network information was not monospaced.
Technicolor uses a monospaced font (such as Courier or Consolas) for wireless network information and therefore other manufacturers should do the same including in the configruation menus.

In wireless network configuration sheets I supply to my clients, I now use a monospaced font in certain fields.
My first choice in quality Japanese electrolytics is Nippon Chemi-Con, which has been in business since 1931... the quality of electronics is dependent on the quality of the electrolytics.

If you ask me monospace font should be standard for any kind of important text....
One thing I have noticed in time, is that fictional characters, in animated television shows from my childhood, have have more depth, breadth, and quality than real actors in "Reality" TV shows these days. It seems plotlines for television shows these days have also followed suit.

Declare Variables, not War.
Execute Scripts, not People.

My "Extremest" views: I will spread my knowledge to whoever will receive it. It is their prerogative if they do bad with it.

I caught a scammer using "I" for letter L in a fake PayPal E-mail message!

It was a phishing E-mail and I wouldn't fall for that!
