Hi Nicolas,

I installed this fonts a week or so ago and have found one major problem 
which has caused my no end of problems.

The number 0 is too similar to the number 8 (0808080808) the reason for 
this is there is a slash going thru the 0 making it look the same (to 
me). this in tern has caused me not to spot lots of typos, e.g. should have been, but on my screen I could 
hardly tell the difference until up really close!

I use a rather large font size (14 pt) so I assume these type of typos 
are harder to spot with small font sizes.

Did you spot the typo in the subject line ?

Any comments ?
