Best font to play Angband in on a Mac?

I play vanilla Angband in ASCII mode on a Mac. My favorite fonts to play in are the old PC fonts from the Px437 and PxPlus series. I'm also a fan of the DataSun font and well as Luxi Mono if I'm feeling serif-y. Sometimes I play with a font called Square.

What are some fonts you guys play Angband with?

8x12xb and 9x15x get the job done for me, honestly tho i think we need new font options, or i dont know them.. and the default spacing should set to font if u select no graphics, please som1 make it so!

I agree the Windows version could use improvement on the fonts. On the Mac version, you can choose whatever font you want. That's why I'm asking about fonts.

I'm using Menlo 22pt size for my main map window and 14pt for subwindows. It's ok, I haven't really tried playing with other fonts.

I use DejaVu Sans Mono for roguelikes as well as for my terminal, Emacs, etc. It's readable and looks good. Andale Mono is a good option if you'd like something sparser.
