I have just learned that in recording the box scores in baseball
(an international game despite its U.S. origins), the letter K is
rendered in reverse when appearing in strings of length > 3,
so as to avoid the (U.S.) political implications of "KKK".
Does this usage count as plain text, or is it more like a font
difference or dingbat?
