What is Theban Code? The origins of the Theban alphabet are lost. It is often called "The Runes of Honorius" after its inventor, Honorius of Thebes. And is also referred to as the "Witches Alphabet"

Honorius is considered a mythical character and the coded alphabet was perhaps a way to translate secret messages during the middle ages. It lends an exotic mystic quality to writing symbols.
Other than that it is a merely a curious symbol system for writing.


How does this page work?

This is a fairly simple use of javascript to create a substitution cipher that takes a users keyboard entry and returns image files for each key typed.
The underlying mechanism is a javascript function that calls images of Theban character .gif files stored in an array.

The function checks to see if the characters entered into the input field are a valid character set created from the keyboard input. If [yes] then an image which matches the keyboard stroke is returned into the div.

There is also a return of your keyboard characters in the
"You wrote…" area of the div.
