View Full Version : Is there html code to create backwards letters?

04-13-2005, 09:46 AM
Not sure if this really goes here but I was trying to find html code to create individual backward letters (like the reflection from a mirror) but all I could find was some to make the whole word back to front. Any ideas, I would appreciate it.

Ps: I've done it using applications but everytime you try to paste it it flips the letter back round the right way :mad:

I'm not an html guru, but you could try using a font that is backward, such as this one: http://www.webfontlist.com/pages/station.asp?ID=11666&x=Fonts

Thanks but not really what I'm after. I can acheive the disired effect by creating a picture file but I really wanted a piece of code (forget the exact name) such as what you use when you want your html to show a TM symbol.

Ps: How do you import the fonts you linked to. Had a look round photoshop& i can't seem to find it.

Thanks again though ;)

To use fonts downloaded am fairly sure you just need to drop em into the windows\fonts folder.
<off to check that now..>

While you can install and use any font in a webpage, on your computer, when uploaded to a server, unless the person visiting the site has the same font, they will not see the same effect.

That is why CSS stylesheets specify font families, such as serif or sans-serif, leaving the choice of font up to the browser.

The only way of ensuring that exactly what you want is displayed to everyone visiting the page is to use an image file.

The symbol can be inserted into html using the 6-character sequence & # 1 5 3 ; (with no spaces) which, quite simply, is its reference number in the extended character set. Check it out in the character map.

Non-standard characters such as those found in specialised fonts must either be utilised as images or (in IE4 and above) by embedding the fonts; http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/workshop/author/fontembed/font_embed.asp

Thanks guys. Honestly, I think I'll leave the font thing and just create an image file with the disired effect. Thanks again though!
