Yes, this is indeed rather strange. We used to have this:

pre {
        padding: 0.5em;
        font-family: courier, monospace;

For whatever reason, asking for courier/monospace for <pre> causes the
browser to display proportional fonts (at least for the two of us).
A fontconfig bug? Anyway, if I comment it out and let the browser use
its default font, it works.

Explanations about why this happens are most welcomed.
