Ambigrams.

This subject is sort of OT and don't know if it quite fits here. Anyway, I did find few good online generators, but the one that's really cool doesn't want you to have the rights to the result, so I did this one by hand. Anybody have a more automated (and free; hey; I'm cheap) way of creating these please let me know because this one's very time consuming and tough (at least for me; not good at it either). Started out using Mathmatica6 font and then the contortions for the result. Anyone else want to try, just play away. What I did was take the outer to characters and flip one and then distort the outlines til I got something that's flipable (another name for this is Flipscript by the way). I then took the next inner to and did the same and so forth. After getting through half of the characters needed, I created a copy of the viewable layers and flipped that and set all the charaters side by side for the result. Like I said; tedious and touch.

I dont know about others but I can't see your image it just looks black - I think it is because it is a png file.

Re: Ambigrams.

That's exactly right Christine. If you click the preview image (the all black one) then it will show when the new window launches. PNG with transparancies aren't really supported will with IE (or most browsers unfortunately).
