You're fast at making presumptions.
There are sanserif fonts where I and l look different (e.g. Verdana) and
such where they look the same (e.g. Arial). Obviously, the latter are not
suitable for displaying URLs.

That's not necessary. It's enough to use a font that was designed for
purposes of information design. Windows includes a sufficient number of such
fonts, e.g. Tahoma and Verdana.
