Indeed! Even if this is an example on how *not* to use Unicode — it is
hard to resist the temptation of fooling around with typical glyphs for
more than 100k characters (especially for those of us raised in the dire
constrains of seven-bit ASCII-art ;-).
I particularly like his "l"s (U+05DF, final nun!), and "g"s (U+183, "d"
with topbar!) — while "q"s for "b"s and "p"s for "d"s (and vice-versa)
are still cool, even if classic.
My own modest attempt surely pales in view of this, although I could
(un)excuse myself with something more than mere fun: See "edp" vs. "qbɘ"
