New logo uses OCR-A

Here’s the new logo for the wiki:

This uses the OCR A font, designed in 1968 to allow both machines and humans to read text (available by free download).

An OCR B was released in Europe at the same time which is easier for humans to read but I didn’t think it was as pretty as the A variant (also with a free download).

My backup choice was the Westminster font, designed by our Natwest Bank to allow machines to machine-read cheques for automated processing. A similar alternative would be Data 70, these are all linked in this typographic entry.
