@farmerman,
I don't know how it's done, but I also see no reason to do it.

@NickFun,
I just wanna see how its done then I will forget it. I was using this "upside down text generator" I found using google. However, the boxes and the crips get in the way

Ya'll seem to be saying they aint just upside down, but that they are also sdrawkcab.

I don't think the wabbits gonna care for that insinuation.

You know it's interesting. Back when I took printing in college, newspapers were still using the old linotype machines and headlines and also commercial print jobs were set by hand by loading individual lead cast letters into a hand held wooden or metal rack--and you held it so that you were looking at the words backwards and upside down as you loaded in the letters. We learned to proofread those lines of type quickly and proficiently.

Now 50 years later I can still easily read stuff that's upside down and backwards. See? All of you who think I'm really wierd are affirmed! Smile

Interesting. When working with some regional papers as part of my journalism study, I had to proofread, too. I got, however, galley proofs and page proofs.

Learning to read upside down and backwards is a learned skill that those of us with military or quasi military backgrounds have developed quickly.

@Walter Hinteler,
This was different though, Walter. The type I was referring to here hadn't even been loaded onto the galley yet and hadn't yet produced a proof.

Well shoot. Have you tried standing on your head and reading it in a mirror?
