Yeah, forgot my IsPlainFixed() suggestion, IsMonospaced() is a way
If we go with IsMonospaced(), then any reference to the FullAndHalf
should be changed to Duospaced, since that's the correct paired term.
Not a fan: we already have a method for this (IsFullAndHalfFixed()).
Why introduce another?
Also, "monospaced" is a relatively known term, and full-half is more
exact and descriptive.
Full-half makes no sense in English, it's a contradiction in terms.
The proper term is Duospaced.
We would only be changing the name of IsFullAndHalfFixed().
The constants using B_FULL_AND_HALF or whatever need to be B_DUOSPACED
My reasoning is quite simple: If you do a Google search for Douspaced,
you get logical results pertaining to the problem at hand, including the
WikiPedia article entitled "Duospaced font."
If you search for "full and half font" the results, in order:
star-half | Font Awesome
battery-half | Font Awesome
Vaporware Text Generator...

I'm a big fan of using the proper, established, industry terminology
whenever it is logical and makes sense.
