Well-known problem: the number "one", capital "eye", and lowercase
"ell" all look similar or identical in most fonts.

Similarly for "two" and uppercase "Z", and so on.

Has anyone created a "reduced" characterset where each character is
distinctly different from every other character?

new ideas and technology is unwise and ultimately futile.
