Dingbat conversation
color cycle (slow)

Tomorrow's therithere comic has just inspired me to try a little experiment, if any of y'all want to cooperate. It'll require the standard Windows dingbat fonts- Wingdings, Wingdings 2, Wingdings 3, and Webdings. All Windows users should have them, and Linux users I think can get them.

Just how much of a conversation is it possible to hold using only the symbols in those four fonts? No fair using them to encrypt plaintext- use the dingbats themselves. <font face="Wingdings">, for example, will shift you into the Wingdings font until the next </font> tag. I'd suggest picking from the Character Map here!

Anybody want to try?

I can get OpenOffice to use truetype fonts, but I've never figured out how to make Firefox display them in Linux. If you know how, I'm game to try.

Would you like someone to send the fonts your way?
