Yep, this is the old My Chem font.

Works great, by the way.

Hiya, I know it says free, but does that count for using in a print-on-demand book?
Pls contact

Why make a font with no 0 or 1?? I'm trying to type "2012"...impossible with this font!

zephyrblue and ianryd,

In the really old days, typewriters didn't have 0's or 1's. You used the uppercase letter O and the lowercase letter l for the 0 and 1. This saved two keys and two type bars, as well as the linkage between the keys and type bars. I'm guessing that the type designer is being very pure in his interpretation of his own mom's typewriter (or nostalgic).

On older typewrites, there was never a 1 or zero 0 on the keyboard.

You used the lowercase letter l (L) key for the number one and uppercase letter o (O)for zero's.
