Is it just me or is there no T?

Thank you so much! 🎉

Could you include uppercase variants as well? Or are they the same? Thanks!

@FxllenCode this list was exhaustive enough for my purposes at the time. There's a much more exhaustive list here: https://github.com/codebox/homoglyph/blob/master/raw_data/chars.txt

Thanks a lot, mate. This was perfect for a little troll on an image board. Someone decided, users are not allowed to write "[deleted]" as a comment. I thought, taking this joke from me is dumb and if it's dumb, the person definitely will not be aware of such characters xD

I think it's dumb, because either way the result is the same, people will wonder what was written there originally :D

Hi, there. Let me add an example. Macedonian letters Dze (Ѕ and ѕ) look like the corresponding Latin letters S and s

Ooooh, thanks for the list! My original list was compiled for my then 9-year old daughter's first webapp: https://stevenacoffman.github.io/homoglyphs/

so she and her friends could type funny looking messages to one another. As a result, she wanted only similar rather than identical symbols.
