Adobe Serif MM substitution font, trying to emulate a monospaced typeface.
More info here (in between the shouting and ranting).
Previous sightings here.
The uppercase "Q" in the bold sans-serif substitution font is actually quite charming... ;)
This could be a new kind of type ID quiz, based on the proportions which font do you think was being substituted?
There was actually something like that done in Publish magazine years ago, a kind of back page puzzle thing. They showed a number of samples in the Adobe substitute fonts and you had to guess the font. I find that I can do it sometimes. There is a surprising amount of "font DNA" even in the proportions.
