1.0 — Note — Decem­ber 4th, 2009

Added to Word­Press Plu­gin direc­tory last week. Removed down­load links from my site and replaced with links to Renamed direc­tory names for Installation.

1.0 — Ini­tial Release — Octo­ber 21st, 2009

I’ve cre­ated a Word­Press plu­gin to fix an issue I have with the Word­Press Dash­board: the HTML edi­tor is not mono­spaced. I don’t like read­ing code in 13px Lucida Grande, so I wrote a plu­gin to add a stylesheet with 12px Monaco.

I may add more in the future.
