Took me a while to understand it too. Seems most people use the small letter O for the persons head: o7
I am not sure which looks better, but I think it depends on the Font. I wonder if it looks better in Comics Sans :)

o7 O7 07 <-- Small letter O, Large Letter O, and the Number Zero, which looks to me more like a Head. Unless your head is a perfect circle. :shock:

Hope I'm picking up ironic humour here. Absolutely nothing looks better in Comic Sans.

DING DING! We have a winner! You have recognized Sarcasm on the Internet! You are an Internet Abnormality! Congratulations being Unique!

Seriously, I was just handed a business card from a Private Accountant last week. It was in Comic Sans. I laughed, and he asked me what was so funny. I didn't have the heart to tell this guy who probably spent more time with his face in books than in sunshine to get his accreditation, why I was laughing.

LOL I think it is better to install a Comic Sans Blocker, I mean they MUST exist, right?
