I've become quite partial to the 'terminus' font for my Emacs use.  It's
nice looking and differentiates confusing characters ('1' and 'l', 'O'
and '0', etc) quite well.  The only problem is it's a bit big (and
non-scalable), but it's still worth it for me.  Available in the
'xfonts-terminus' package from your friendly Debian mirror.

Add these to your ~/.emacs for eye candy goodness:
;;enable font-lock by default in all supporting modes
(global-font-lock-mode t)
(setq font-lock-maximum-decoration t)
