# [texhax] highly condensed font in a figure

Hi,

I need to display a short code listing in a paper that I'm working on.
Since I don't have much space, I figured I'd try to use a highly
condensed font.  I found the following question on stack exchange,
which looked promising:

https://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/47489/looking-for-monospaced-condensed-font

Unfortunately, it doesn't work for me in a figure (MWE follows).  I
have no idea why and my search engine foo has failed me.  Any ideas?

:) Neal
