Well, it's a nice way of archiving messages, anyway.

No, but the problem is the "upgrade" managing to remove the mapping from 
"monospace" to a monospaced font. (Someone thinks "DejaVu Sans" is such a 
font, I imagine.) I guess I'll dig into my font configuration and fix it 
manually, given that nobody ever got back to me on my bug report.

I think "pre" is obliged to be a monospaced font by default, if you look at 
the HTML and CSS specifications.
