    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"
    at <$edp.html#edp_rev > on both sides of the
    same flag.
