Reverse text (for looking in a mirror) in email or other app e.g. Word


©

Is there a way that I can use a text font in an email so that when I
type it out, the person needs to look in a mirror to read it?
Would I need a TTF font or a special app that would "reverse/mirror"
this for me?
It is not needed for security - just for fun and giving the person a bit
of a challenge to read the email/word document.
Thanks
PS - I can't use a graphic because I need to type the message.

look in the stationery forums - I think you can do it with DHTML.

most image editing suites enable you to flip the image so its a mirror image
you could then insert into an email

Here is a link to a mirror image font - look for osomir.zip

Not sure if they will need it as well to view it

Easy way. Take a screen shot of the text into a graphics
program and reverse it.
Hard way. Use a program to create your own "revers" font.

The poster indicated sending a Word document -- and Word has an option
to embed the fonts of a document into it.

(I can't give the details of where on the menu to do the command, as
I've got Word currently uninstalled. But one can always do something
like Ask the Paperclip.)

To feel sure that the font did get embedded into the document. Hide the
font file where Windows can't find it. Then load the document, and see
how it displays.
