    Hello All,
    Don't know how to start a new thread in this section, so forgive me.
    For the past months I have been working quite a lot on the ETO POW Google-sheet.
    Recently a contributor to that sheet (uses a medium-blue cell fill as an identifier) is inserting data.
    (S)he has "slashed zeros" in whatever font is being used!
    I have always wanted this. I want 'slashed zeros' (both in Word and Excel). How do I get them?
    I have tried using the 'Help' sections of both but, not having a PhD in computer science, I have failed miserably! I can make individual zeros 'slashed', but can't make the font on my desk-top always 'slash' the zeros!!
    Can anybody help?

    Paul,
    It is the figure zero with a stoke across it running from botton left to top right of the 'circle'. It's purpose is to differentiate it from the letter 'O'. The letter 'O' when written scripts were still in use (and Tx/Rx by H/F W/T) would, quite frequently, have a 'dot' in the middle of the 'O'. This again, was to avoid confusion with the figure zero. You will have noted that in military writing/printing the small circle character (in serial numbers, etc) is almosy entrirely used as a figure, and very rarely as the letter. If you Google Inconsolata, you will be presented with a font. If you look at the numbers sequence you will see that the zero is 'slashed'. I want this. It is what I was used for more than 40 yrs, and makes me feel much more comfortable.
    If, for some reason, Microsoft does not like the Inconsolata font (for political or financial reasons) then so be it. I saw that some correspondent had used a font with a 'slashed zero' on the ETO POW Google-sheet. I want it. How do I get it?

    Paul,
    That is precisely what I mean.
    You have given me several fonts with 'slashed zeros'. For which I thank you.
    I'm trying to find out of they will run - as a routine - on a W10 Dell desktop. And if I install one of them will it - when a DT rceives one of my emails - cause the DT computer to crash? Beyond my computer knowldge/ability! Thus my request for info/guidance from the experts!
    Tks yr help.

    What's up with the http://www.rafcommands.com/ page? I'm getting the following error message:

    Your server is running PHP version 5.5.38 but WordPress 6.0.1 requires at least 5.6.20.

    It's doing it in Firefox and Safari. Does something need updating?

    Thanks

    Simon

    EDIT - it's working now!
