I had no intention of starting a holy war (as prophesized by Jeff Aldrich):)!

I didn't really get an answer to my question, just A LOT of:
        "Gee, I kinda like screen.r.* and lucida-typewriter!"

The above fonts were suggest by many to be the fixed width fonts of
choice. What I was looking for were helvetica, times-roman, or palatino.
There have been no more responses other than the "use what you have" type,
so I must assume that there is no way to convert a proportional font to
fixed width other than writing your own:-(

Many thanks to the folloowing for their help:
