I would like to use Droid Sans Mono but when I switch to it, the bold and italic styles which worked fine with Consolas, Meslo, etc, are ignored. Any ideas?

Edit: Yes that seems to be the case. Droid Sans Mono does not provide bold and italic.

I indent with two spaces as my tabs (no tabs allowed) and I find that the left side of my text does not line up with the guidelines that are shown at the proper two space indentation. Very strange.
