What font has both a checkmark and an N/A ?

I am preparing a single-page summary of work performed, and it would be nice to have both a checkmark and N/A in the same font, because it might be visually pleasing and because I do not want to have to change the font on a cell-by-cell basis.

There are different three Unicode characters for checkmarks: U+2611, U+2713 and U+2714. Those links contain popular fonts that have them. Arial Unicode MS is probably the easiest if you are on Windows; the DejaVu family also works well.

NA (n/a) should be done using normal Latin (English) characters. I'm not aware of a Unicode font glyph for it (NA), nor could I find one. Both Arial Unicode MS and the DejaVu family support the Latin (English) alphabet, so they can be typed normally.

Maybe I can use ∅ instead of N/A. They sort of map. –  Thomas L Holaday Mar 11 '12 at 15:48
    
If you could provide an example of what the NA should look like, I might be able to find something. HTML ∅ is U+2205. The no symbol is U+20E0. Also, what are you using to generate/view this summary? –  Bob Mar 11 '12 at 16:01
