Device: Sony PRS 300
Fixed-width fonts for text files.

Hi, I was wondering if there was any way to tell the device to use fixed-width fonts for text files?

I use my PRS-300 a lot for playing music. I have a bunch of songs with chords in text files. These text files need a fixed-width font (like courier), so that the chord changes appear in the right place, and chord boxes and tab look right. Here's a sample:

"What's going on"
(Marvin Gaye)

Chords: E A D G B e
Cmaj7 3 3 2 0 0 0
Am x 0 2 2 1 0
Dm7 x x 0 2 1 1 (use for verses)
Dm7 x 5 7 5 6 5 (use for chorus)
G6 3 5 3 4 5 3
G7-III 3 5 3 4 6 3
G7-I 3 2 0 0 0 1
F7 1 3 1 2 4 1


Cmaj7 Am
Mother, mother, there's too many of you crying
Cmaj7 Am
Brother, brother, brother, there's far too many of you dying
You know we've got to find a way
G6 G7-III G7-I
To bring some lovin' here today, hey

Well the board doesn't get this quite right, but you get the idea.

Now I know I can use word to apply a fixed-width font, but I thought the most elegant solution would be to tell the device to use a fixed width font for plain text. Is there a way to do this?

Any help appreciated,
