People won't install fonts for you just to get code in help files to
look like what you want. I can pretty much guarantee that.

You could use Consolas, which is in Vista and Office 2007 on windows
(and a free download). It has the slashed 0 glyph, and its a well
designed monospace font. Depending on the platform for your product
your users may already have it.
