I purchased a programming book from Amazon which I'm reading on the Kindle for Mac application. The rendering of the fixed-width font (the code examples) is just insane. Is there a way to fix this? Are there alternative readers that do a better job?

Is it any better if you use the Kindle Cloud Reader (read your Kindle books in a web browser)?

It's entirely better, and it looks like the entire book can be downloaded in HTML for offline reading too. Remains to be seen if that solution works on iOS devices, too... Many thanks! – Chap Dec 17 '13 at 13:25
