Fronted back vowels.

I did ask this elsewhere (and got a variety of answers), but I'd like to see
what you guys have to say. I'm creating a personal con-alphabet (in fact,
i've got it mostly rendered.. i'm planning to post it later). It's meant to
represent how I speak. I've got my "normal" speech represented there
(typical western American accent). I also want to render a way to show the
"Californian" accent, that I'd posted about a week ago. So, here's my
dilemma. I'm not exactly sure what the IPA for _fronted_ /o/ and /u/ are. I
could easily just write down in my notes under the glyphs "fronted", but the
chart I'm using, I want to use the right IPA symbols when I post them. On
the ZBB board, people there said that the values for fronted /o/ and /u/ are
"barred O" (and gave /2/ for the ASCII IPA) and "barred u" (Giving /}/.
Looking at Don Blahedo's chart, /2/ is "slashed o" not "barred o".
So, what exactly *are* the IPA values for fronted /o/ and /u/? Are there
extremes? What do these vowels typically change to?
