I wouldn't be too harsh here, Kit; they're very difficult to distinguish in some fonts... ...which leads to the generic advice: make sure you work in a font that clearly distinguishes between 1 (one) and l (lowercase el). So for example: Lucida Console good; but Times New Roman and Courier New (especially 8 point or below) not so much. I learned this lesson the hard way. ;) Best, Glenn.
