rot13 DejaVu fonts

I found myself wondering how to rot13 cipher text in a web browser without JavaScript or server-side interaction. I then came up with this idea, rot13 fonts. I have made rot13 equivalents for 2 DejaVu fonts, Sans and Serif. I only have the fonts use the rot13 affected characters, a-z; A-Z, Unicode ranges: U+0041-005a, U+0061-007a. This is so it would be more suitable for web use because the DejaVu fonts are 500KB+ each. The rot13 fonts are 12kb to 14kb large.

You can test these fonts to view “Uryyb Jbeyq!” (rot13 “Hello World!”) at this test page. The test page requires Firefox 3.1+ or Safari 3.1+ or for both rot13 DejaVu Sans and Serif to be installed on your computer.

The fonts are available for download here.

rot47 DejaVu fonts may be added when I get the time.
