I see many people here (and not just here) writing G-d.
Aren't G-d's names sacred only in Hebrew, and even in Hebrew isn't it ok to write the names digitally (and have it displayed on a screen) and it's forbidden only in writing?
Are there any Halachot in this matter?

  • There are people who use the number 0 instead of the letter o for digital display in order to avoid some of the hyphenation problems that some output programs (such as Windoze) can present. – sabbahillel May 18 '15 at 12:04
