I'd like to find a good alternative to Arial. I'm giving a presentation that needs to use the word Ill-conditioned:

Ill-conditioned

and the word "Ill" looks like the roman numeral 3. There must be some sans-serif typeface out there that has horizontal bars on the capital I...

any suggestions? I'm using OpenOffice so that's a minor limitation w/r/t typefaces.

Try Tahoma. The i is clearly different from the lower-case L. It's similar to the i in Courier New.

No problem! I really like the way Tahoma looks so it was easy to recommend it. –  alex Sep 3 '09 at 18:03

You can also search dafont.com using text of your choice. I've used your recommended phrase "Ill" to make the difference clearer.
