What we need is a super-secret code language!

Linked from sweetcode: Alphabet Soup is a program that can generate plausible-looking characters reminiscent of, but not found in, common character sets. A grammar of "building blocks" of letters defines the structure of possible "letter-like" things, and the program can choose random combinations out of that grammar.

I was much less impressed once I realized that the author hand-built the grammar. Still cute, though.
