Hacking with UNICODE and the Mirroring Character (Link)

Fun with UNICODE and Mirroring Character [via] 74 68 65 20 64 69 67 69 74 61 6C 20 6D 65

This is pretty kewl:

Unicode is capable of representing many languages, including those written from left to right and those written from right to left. There are special characters in UNICODE to achieve the RTL. One such character is the Mirroring character.

I can’t post the character here because wordpress limits certain code use, also it happens to be invisible as in its not a printable character, but just read the whole article in from the link above.  It has an example of the character that makes any language appear right to left.  Also, its just a damned interesting article with info on unicode 8 and 16.  It even has an idea on how to use this for phishing!!

However, if you’re all lazy and just want the unicode character here it is from the comments on the post.

Good – I should definitely pronounce, impressed with your web site. I had no trouble navigating through all tabs as well as related info ended up being truly easy to do to access. I recently found what I hoped for before you know it at all. Quite unusual. Is likely to appreciate it for those who add forums or anything, web site theme . a tones way for your customer to communicate. Nice task.
