hello mito ASCII profile-shot by mitoXD hello mito ASCII profile-shot by mitoXD


  • Present preview of the ASCII art images plain text version. Includes header and copyright, on deviantARTs profile widget’s mint default color. – Who needs a “webcam” ?

  • The original image was inversely rendered, and flattened to balance the line height of the website.  In other words, the website contains less lines to fill a square than the original image.  Generating the ASCII image gave only a clue about looks and size.  Eventually all contents including tags for formatting and the non-breakable space special characters had to be typed and better saved as a separate file before uploading.

  • Using code HTML tags for mono-spacing, as well as bold and inverse tags for enhanced contrast and shading.  Further there had characters or character combinations to be replaced, to prevent hash-tagging, or smileys.

  • For rendering the header, figlets default font actually looked the best.  The program features some Japanese katakana font, but yet no Korean Hangul.  Hence I created my own version of 안녕 annyeong for “hello.”  Anyway due to the websites line height, the header displays a bit stretched.

  • Note, while all the textual contents can be copied and pasted, multiple spaces can not.

  • There’s a drawback regarding real text in the browser however: Depending on the width of the column or the block element on the screen, there might be line-breaks which will corrupt the whole thing.  Hence it can be better to use a screen shot from the ASCII art piece instead.

  • a graphical reference screenie: [link]

  • helping apps: aview[link] and figlet[link] in an X terminal, nabi XIM for the Hangul input, Mousepad text editor, mwsnap free Windows screen grabber, Gimp
