A lowercase "L" is the traditional replacement for the missing numeral one, but I only have one typer that lacks a zero... and it's difficult to get used to! I have to slow down and pay attention when it comes time to do punctuation or I get my ) mixed with my ( _ instead of 'Oh, the woes of the type-lover.
Thanks for the typecast. I am looking forward to the Hong Kong paper/notepad review. Not being able to override the margin stop sounds like a real annoyance :(
