How Do You Find out if a VIN Has a Letter “o” or the Numeral 0?

How do you determine/identify a vehicle identification number having the letter "O" (as in "Oscar") or the numeral 0? The Arabic number 0 can be confused with the letter "O."

It is numeral 0. The letter "O" is not allowed according to
. Apparently letters "I" and "Q" are not allowed either (presumably due to their potential confusion with numerals "1" and "0").

We believe that ISO 3779:P2009 is the document that governs VIN characters.
