Another skill to be learned was the ability to block-print neatly and 
legibly, differentiating "1" from "I", "0" from "O", etc.  It was all 
uppercase, so that simplified things somewhat.  To this day, I still 
put a line through my "7", although I've dropped the stroke through 
my zero as most people find it to be confusing.

To this day, my cursive sucks, but my block printing is exemplary.
