Confusing digits in GUI

I reiterate here my plea for a font change at least in the battle screen GUI as the current "Arial font" (as it seems to be) has been obviously developed for some aesthetic reason not for readability.

Easy readable distance digits - especially when ships are overlapping in the distance - are paramount in DD game and as it is now, digits 5,6,8 & 9 are difficult to tell apart. If one mistakenly reads a 6 as 8 then when closing the distance the expected 7 turns to be a 5 ... and one dies :(

To mark the difference here is an example in Times New Roman: 5 6 8 9

One can see 8 looks more apart as the "tails" of 6 and 9 are much more open and 5 has a very distinct tail from 6.

Maybe it is not so obvious in normal post size but in high def game it looks more like 5 6 8 9 vs 5 6 8 9.

If you have 20/20 vision or your glasses are up to date try to look a bit through your eyelashes and you'll see my point more clearly  :)
