    It is not better. If anything might be better, it would be a digit zero
    from a font that has a slash through it. In the past, linguists have
    probably put this into their documents by typing zero, backspacing and
    typing /, or formatting with a slash (if supported in a word processor).
    The O-stroke would be a last resort for a linguist, IMO.
