Er, no Ward, I don't think you quite understand.
This is purely a font. In other words a typeface. All it's doing is
showing an ASCII '0' (zero) with a slashed zero, so it's easily
distinguisable between and 'O' (oh) and a '0' (zero).
It is *not* inserting the ASCII character for a slashed zero (alt +
0126 on Windoze).
For clarification, install the font, and view the Cabrillo log in
Notepad using firstly Courier New and then the ProFont typeface.
