Our first thought was to use one of the Australian schools handwriting
fonts . We're currently experimenting with the Queensland Compact
Bold font , as it is more legible than the others. However, any
cursive font is less readable on a screen. Feedback so far has been
What I think we need is a legible sans-serif font.
A lot of the freeware fonts out there are of low quality, incomplete
and not unicode compliant.

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.
