Take a look around

The problem is: to truly appreciate the advanced/cool stuff you need to know about complex scripts, vertical writing, Nastaliq, etc. Otherwise it all
looks like "glyphs on the screen" :).

Well.. what I was hoping for was something where a series of code points, morphed in shape as they accumulated. I know about things like diacriticals and Korean Jamo composition, but I was looking for something where it changed more on some other property....
