[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rxbzE_JAs3A] The Andalé design was originally created by Monotype, as part of Andalé font families.

Andalé Mono was first distributed as an Internet Explorer 4.0 add-on, originally under the name Monotype.com. In version 1.25 of the font, it was renamed to Andale Mono, distributed with Internet Explorer 5.
