I'm using Emacs 23 now and LOVE using proportional fonts! (AKA
variable width fonts.)  It FINALLY makes Emacs look beautiful, makes
text easy to read.

That's a purely subjective feeling. ;-)

Well, my subjective feeling is that I read better if the text is in proportional font, and I can write better if it is in monospace. But I make a lot of typos when I write (usually at the level of words rather than characters), and I notice those typos only if I read the text back in proportional font. Go figure.

Probably comes from all those years of reading books type set in awful proportional fonts ;-)
