Because this came up last week.  Consolas is a ClearType only monospaced font.  Ships with Vista, can also be downloaded separately for Visual Studio users.

And while you’re at it, make sure your ClearType is turned on, and you’ve configured it properly using the ClearType tuner (for XP and Vista).
