You still get the accept, for suggesting paring down the alphabet. Once we can do that, font choice becomes less important.

That's the idea.

Got impatient: the rarity comes to a little over 1 in 933 million. I think that will have to do, though, and even worse I'll lose another character: I'm leaning towards actually using Courier (for guaranteed availability) and dropping the upper O, lower L, and numeral 0.

Actually, I think I will go with Courier, in case we ever get to e-mail these. I know that will be available on any target system. Key space now down to 59 :(

Would still need to drop the upper case O, but now it's one character better than consolas. I'm inclined to still drop the lower case L, too, because it's just ugly. I could see people going, "What in the world is that?". Also, Consolas is already installed on the machine where this will run, where I'm pretty sure I'd have to setup Andale Mono special.

I'll run some numbers tomorrow, and I'll accept this then if an alphabet size of 60 (no O or l) still meets my goals --- I want the rarity of a real match (in terms of avg # of guess required to get a hit) to be better than 1 in 1 billion, based on the key size and expected population size

Hmm... quick test says I also need to remove lower-case L.

lower-L still looks like a one. numeral 0 and upper O could still confuse.

It is very tempting (and would be fairly simple) to remove all six of those character glyphs from my alphabet, even if it does cut my key space in half (and thus reduce the security by an equivalent amount). And looking at the sample, I think I can just remove the upper case O. Everything else there is completely unmistakable.
