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.
