lowercase letter oh, capital letter oh, character zero:
base(font=PT sans):
oO0
in quote tags (font=PT sans, italic):
oO0
in code=text tags (font=Consolas):
Code:
oO0
Note the difference in character zero. This confused me when I was trying to fix my post that needed code tags. The zeroes looked different. Some were character zero, some not. My keyboard was generating capital oh for zero. Or maybe I cannot type. Either way it was confusing. Someone on another forum pointed this problem out, and it answered my question.

I'm not sure if this is a feature or a problem.

For better character definition we are moving the code font to Monaco in PF5

Ah, the times when slashed zero was the only correct way of writing it in the code.
