Why the typerwriter-like font?

RFCs were first published in 1969, long before fancy fonts were easy to access. Entire diagrams were drawn with whatever could be found on a common typewriter. In the spirit of "keeping things simple" the style is maintained even in RFCs published today.

We've used the same style in the design of this web site as an homage.

Note: The picture of the rubber chicken in RFC 2321 must have taken ages to get "just right".
