A simple userstyle to change the font in the Simplenote textarea to font-family:monospace. Defaults to the CSS font-size "medium" property, but allows selecting other sizes from the drop-down picker.

More info
Tested working with Firefox 9.x (with and without Stylish) and Chromium 16.something (without Stylish) on Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick. (Update: Re-tested with Firefox Nightly 28.0a1 and Chromium 30.0.1599.114 both using the latest Stylish extension on Ubuntu 12.04.) A happy Valentine's Day gift to the Simplenote users who have been for a while.

The Simplenote web app's borders in the screenshot have been removed by Also seen in this screenshot: the Resurrect Pages,, and Omnibar Firefox extensions, plus the DuckDuckGo search plugin. Update 2013-11-23: still works after Automattic acquisition and iOS 7-ish redesign.

If this style helps you out and you feel like externalizing your joy by giving away some money, please consider, the creators of the Firefox web browser, without which I couldn't have created this style. (Okay, and helped, too.)
