we don't need text formatting because we have unicode babey
unicode font hackery is
✅ compatible with pretty much everything except on some devices where it just displays as white squares but thats good enough
✅ completely unintuitive so you can prove that you're cooler than other people by knowing how to make the 𝔀𝓪𝓬𝓴𝔂 𝓬𝓾𝓻𝓵𝔂 𝓵𝓮𝓽𝓽𝓮𝓻𝓼
✅ not actually formatting at all
✅ check it out you can do 𝐛𝐨𝐥𝐝 and 𝑖𝑡𝑎𝑙𝑖𝑐 and even 𝒃𝒐𝒕𝒉 all using different character sets meaning that some devices support some and not others
✅ hey people with screen readers? get fucked
@dredmorbius aw, fiddlesticks, I knew I messed up something 😅 I mean, except for the Arabic numerals in there, but that would have been confusing, and, you know, the whole English thing
@trickster I am saddened that 'o' is not a Roman numeral. We have no numeric 'lol'.
But MDCCCLXXXVIII is the longest year, in Roman numerals, so far, on the Gregorian/Julian calendar.
It won't be beat until MMMDCCCLXXXVIII.
