Distinguishing 0s From 8s

Distinguishing 0s From 8s

My eyesight is not so good. Is there a utility or program that can change the screen to show a 0 (zero) as a . In poor light it is difficult to distinguish between a 0 and an 8.

[Contributing Editor Ed Keefe puts phone numbers in his phone book's Notes field and zooms in on that to make the numbers more readable.

Another approach would be to use a more unique special character for 0. For example, you can enter the international symbol on the 100LX by holding down (ALT) and (MENU) and pressing 229. On the 95LX, that character would be generated by holding down (ALT) and pressing 229. With this approach, the number 808 would appear as 88. The drawback of this approach is that is not the number 0, and can't be used as a number in HP CALC equations or Lotus spreadsheets.

FCL [ON DISK] (File Compiler and Loader) lets you change the built-in 100LX fonts in both System Manager and DOS screens. 100Buddy (see review, page 15) fixes the 100LX so it displays zeros without the slash line through them -- Rich.]
