    Less roundish with stronger sides makes it sound more like a zero than
    like an oh. Given that and George Gerrity’s followup¹ in this thread,
    it is likely that U+2080 SUBSCRIPT ZERO »₀« is what you want. (Are
    SUBSCRIPT ONE through SUBSCRIPE FOUR »₁₂₃₄« used for the other tones?
    If so, that would be even more evidence for »₀«.)
