comment What is an aesthetically pleasing font for programmers?
How does this relate to User Experience? Are you designing an application that has programmers as end users? Do you expect the end users to be incapable of selecting a font that suits them, then?

comment Html best input type for boolean values selection
Even then, it is best to show the options, instead of using a dropdown. It immediately tells that these are the options and which, if any, is the default. If neither is set the default, the user still has the “don’t want to tell” option, just implicitly (do not select either).

If it’s an explanation of non-editable data, then yes, it needs no special markup (or there is no suitable markup).
