[request] change display font for non-formated text

Idea

"Many sans serif typefaces don’t differentiate between the uppercase “I” and the lowercase “l” very well. (...) This a legibility problem."*

https://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/39543/is-there-a-sans-serif-font-that-appears-different-for-i-capital-i-and-l-small

Especially when working with foreign and technical texts. Add Evernote's constant problems with  formatting and there you have it. A mess. I'd opt for a mono font if I could.

*And a backward embarrassment, I might add! Clearly the font selection nowadays usually caters to looks and cruft lovers.

Posts in this forum are product feedback or feature requests, and users who come here can vote on the requests using the arrows at the top of the page. Evernote staff almost never respond directly to these requests, unless it's something really urgent. You might want to search the forum for "font"--there have been quite a few similar requests, and it might be most effective to add your vote to an existing one.

Sorry for bumping.

To my defense, sort of, I spent circa 45 minutes digging through the forums trying to find a similar request. Not a valid excue, but at least I made an effort. ;)
