I'm trying to find a font to use for the Sugar UI that has characters
formed in the way they are taught in Australian schools (and probably
in other countries too). The default Sans Serif font (and most fonts
I've seen) have "a" and "9" characters with hooks. I'm after a font
with a uses a "bowl a" and "9" with a vertical (not curved/hooked)

I've tried to explain this (with pictures) at
