Making terminal output font fixed-width in documentation

Yes, you got my suggestion right.

Seems like I misunderstood the original idea/markup, and now I hope I got your point.

Yet I still feel a bit frustrated by seeing a piece of variable-width text embedded into fixed-width text block both representing work (input) done in the usual terminal session (where all characters are equally wide). And thus I seek for a change. :)

To make a distinction between typing a command and typing a heredoc content I probably would:

(1) add space after the `>` symbol;
(2) use a different colors for the `>` and the input being made;
(3) still would switch to the fixed-width text.

(so the end result looks similar to what I see in my terminal emulator)

Maybe something like that.

This should be pretty similar to what I get in my terminal.

(inspired by the Running VAX/VMS Under Linux Using SIMH page)

PS. Not sure if I pictured my frustration clear enough. :)
PPS. That's not to say the current look-n-feel is critical, just quite annoying to me. :P
