Ok, most _fonts_ are not monospaced, and many fonts have bad kerning, but
there are many truly monospaced fonts around: Courier, Letter Gothic,
Prestige Elite, Trixie, to name just a few. Obviously, a typeface like
American Typewriter, which was designed to _kindof_ look like a typeface,
but really is a slick display face, is not.
What you have to be careful with, is the setting for word spaces in your
layout program. If you use a default wordspace that is not 100%, the
letters won't align.
