It must again be the habit of typing in monospace for years.  Your eyes
are looking for text in a particular place but the proportional font
condenses it.  On occasion when I have to write documents for Word, I
type it in Emacs first and then cut-and-paste it into Word.  I had even
written some Emacs commands for it in the old days.  But, now that we
have the visual-line-mode, a straight cut-and-paste will work fine.
