  • The question does not concern the technical computing software Mathematica by Wolfram Research. Please see the help center to find out about the topics that can be asked here.
If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

This question appears to be off-topic because it is about fonts used in a site about Mathematica. It is not about Mathematica itself. –  Sjoerd C. de Vries Oct 12 '13 at 21:14
Reword the question to: how can I get the beautiful font used in the Demonstrations web site in my notebook? Then it will be on topic. –  Hector Oct 13 '13 at 0:25
For future reference, try Identifont. In this case, it agrees with Sjoerd that the font is Lucida Sans Typewriter. –  Rahul Oct 13 '13 at 1:46

It looks like it is Lucida Sans Typewriter.

Here is a snippet from the demonstrations site:

And here the downloaded code set in Lucida:

BTW I believe this question is not actually about Mathematica and I'll be voting to close as off-topic. –  Sjoerd C. de Vries Oct 12 '13 at 21:13
I think you're right, but aren't the '1's slightly different? –  cormullion Oct 13 '13 at 7:16
@cormullion. I don't think so. If there's a difference that's probably due to a slightly different bitmap size. I've got the feeling though that the snippet font is just slightly stretched in the vertical, so it could be a condensed variety. One real difference is the Greek delta in the bottom left, but that may be due to font replacement. –  Sjoerd C. de Vries Oct 13 '13 at 8:10
Can you provide a link to the webpage for the snippet? I get the feeling that it might not be Lucida Sans Typewriter. That is a Microsoft font. I do not think you can distribute it for free. It comes with Office. –  Hector Oct 13 '13 at 13:25
@hector any demonstrations page should work. –  Sjoerd C. de Vries Oct 13 '13 at 16:10
