Using monospace to make some computer code stand out as such. It would suffice with select portions, though, like some keywords.

Right, but for a monospace font in verbatim mode, one might expect it. Maybe there should be a monospace option for the fallback.

Do you have any suggestions? —There is no such font covering the several thousands of glyphs used in math, and I am not sure it would help readability. Monospace somehow got popular for code in the ASCII range.
