I forgot: if you're interested in such subtle font aspects, then you might check also Lucida Console DK, which is part of TUG's Lucida OpenType package <http://tug.org/store/lucida/opentype.html>.

It is a customized version of Lucida Grande Mono DK specially designed for console apps. To that effect, it has shorter capitals.

The zero is not dotted nor slashed. "Slashed Zero" is available as a typographic extra, but when I select it in Apple's font picker it doesn't appear in TeXShop.

However, the O and Q letters have the super-elliptic design championed by Don Knuth (hence the DK in the font name)


so they are easily distinguished from the 0 digit. See also


Attached are screnshots of the same text in Menlo

and Lucida Console DK

You really need a trained eye to see the differences.
