Unicode reverse text: character, direction

Unicode reverse text: character, direction

How to easily write text backwards (right to left) in a web page or in a forum without having to think about the order of the letters? There is a relatively surprising solution, which involves the use of a special character (to be placed just after your text) to automatically change display direction of your text.

This character corresponds to a sequence of Unicode codes whose HTML code is as follows:

‫‬‭‮‪‫‬?‫‬‭‮‪‫‬‭‮&#1161

This will give you the following character: 

‫‬‭‮‪‫‬‭‮҉‫‬‭‮‪‫‬‭‮҉

  • Place the character after your text, and the text will be reversed. For example using the phrase "This text is displayed in reverse", followed by the special character gives you this: 

?‫‬‭‮‪‫‬‭‮҉ This text is displayed in reverse.
