Bacon Cipher

Francis Bacon created this method of hiding one message within another. It is not a true cipher, but just a way to conceal your secret text within plain sight. The way it originally worked is that the writer would use two different typefaces. One would be the "A" typeface and the other would be "B". Your message would be written with the two fonts intermingled, thus hiding your message within a perfectly normal text. There are two versions. The first uses the same code for I and J, plus the same code for U and V. The second uses distict codes for every letter.

The following buttons can be used to manipulate the text into various forms such as uppercase, lowercase, reverse text, etc. The choice text chosen will be copied and a new page will be opened.
