I'm currently typesetting ØMQ (a.k.a ZeroMQ, 0MQ) project name using utf8 coding :


is there any way of proper typesetting of project name, like with utf8, but without using utf8 ? (I've tried $\varnothing$MQ from amssymb package but it looks funny. $\emptyset$MQ does not look as supposed as well)

If this is the letter used in Danish and other languages (see Wikipedia), I would take \O{}MQ.

Thanks, it looks even better than utf8 ! – Grzegorz Wierzowiecki Aug 26 '12 at 15:36
