Or change font so O and 0 actually look different enough. I like the "old" style zeros which had that line in middle to tell the difference.
Just supporting because this needs fixing.
Simply put, the font is terrible. I've had a bit of education on typefaces, and it may look 'cool', but it ultimately has poor usability as a typeface.
What is the name of this accursed font, anyway? I think Futura would be a better choice, or one of the Gothic Sans.
I can read it, most of the time, but I must admit it probably took my brain a bit to work out how to differentiate. A better font would probably save me the trouble of correcting fellow corpmates.
How about this one: Zekton Free 3.000
- the 0s are just a bit thinner than the Os, as is proper with a font, and the 1 is clearly distinguishable from the l and I. The l and I are the only trouble-spots, from what I can tell.
The most important aspect in a font for readability is telling these pairs of characters apart: 0O 5S 2Z lI 8B
That site seems like a good repository- this thread's got me scanning through it for good 'Techno/Futuristic' fonts that actually have such readability- however, a good number of them don't even distinguish between capitals and lower-case.
