Er, sorry, realizing that you said in the second version, the typestyles 
are chosen as follows: "Bitstream Vera Sans Mono", "Luxi Mono", "Lucida 
Console", "Courier New", courier, monospace.
So you have courier and similar fonts for the commands... But the 
Bistream Vera Sans Mono shoulden't be in the list, IMHO, let alone the 
first choice.  It's a nice font, but it's still more of a display font, 
not really representative of console commands.
