Invisible in most major operating systems until recently, the unicode specification defines a bunch of weird tables which are intended to be used as mathematical variables, for people who are not satisfied with good old a to z, a′ to z′, a′′ to z′′, etc.

Many of these are composed of the full roman alphabet, meaning a fun hack is possible which allows you to type with a weird font in places where you cannot normally use formatting – such as a filename, facebook status, or anywhere you can type unicode text.

I’ve made a little script which allows you to enter some text and have it transformed into the silly font of your choosing.

Weird Unicode Font Converter – just copy and paste the outputted red text into somewhere inappropriate.

I’ve found these tables to work with Ubuntu 10.4, Windows Vista, using Firefox 3.5 or later, but not with anything older than that, not with chrome, and not with Android.

hey, I noticed in your screenshot that you’re also missing many of the character glyphs. have you figured out what’s up with that?

I think that just means whoever made my operating system (ubuntu)‘s fonts missed out a few letters. I have no idea why they might have done this. Do you think it might be a bug in my script, kkit?
