How the heck does this work?

Short answer: Unicode.

Slightly longer answer: It takes advantage of the Mathematical Alphanumeric Symbols Unicode block. A set of characters that fulfill Mathematicians’ need for consistent styles in their equations.

When should I use this tool?

Anywhere you want to use italics but typically can’t; for instance, you may want to use some Chandler-esque sarcasm on Instagram. Could that be anymore useful?

You might want to emphasize a word, or correctly format a citation in a tweet:

According to the original 1891 patent, toilet roll should hang over, notΒ under.

Wrapping or Toilet Paper Roll β€” Patent No 459,516 | S. Wheeler

Without italics none of this subtlety would be possible.

Let me know if you find any more uses for this tool, as I’d like to create a longer article.
