Here is a quick post for a simple application, pointed out by one of my old school friend and a big fan of Orkut, Stylish Text Generator you can use to create an alternative text like pattern to make your name look little different. Use it on My Space, Facebook, Orkut or any other social networking site.
Type in whatever you want and it will convert into Funky Text, Arabic, Hacker Text, Flipped and Changed Case.
It gives you instant 10 types of style for whatever you type. Use the combination of language, flip cases, arabic, numbers etc.
