I know in HTML or LaTeX there is a way to easily put a phrase in a monospace font. Is there a way to do this in Mathematica without manually changing the font for the words I want in monospace?


It will depend on what style sheet you use. In the Default style sheet you can select the text and hit the Cmnd+9 (OS x — I think it's Alt+9 on Windows).

Here is an example.

    $\begingroup$ @M.Stern. Oops, Cmnd+9 or Alt+9. Sorry for the typos. $\endgroup$
