Subject: [IAEP] Sugar UI font

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) stem.

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