Call me erratic, but in BBedit and the Terminal I use ProFont at 9pt 
(http://www.tobias-jung.de/seekingprofont/) which leaves room for a 
huge amount of text in the window, while still remaining legible. 
(ProFont 9pt, is similar to Monaco, but even smaller, and it uses exact 
bitmaps at really small sizes) In TeXShop, I prefer Lucida for content 
text, I find Latin Modern too small and thin on screen, while Lucida 
(most variants) are pretty much indestructible -- they remain legible 
under adverse conditions.
