The severe consequences of making proportional fonts monospaced

So I've discovered that not all fonts look good when each character's the same width. I was hoping that I could somehow get neat rows and columns of text but it ended up becoming a big jumble of alphabet soup. At least if you change the width parameter to something big like 1em then it looks sorta okay, but it definitely can't be used for body text.
Maybe you'll find this useful with numbers or something but if you've been trying to do something like this I warn you: the results are ugly.
