One hundred and Forty

This page is deigned to produce sentences of 140 characters of less using a ruler that is in fact a graphic pattern that will match the width of the characters you type.

Example of a sentence that is 140 characters long:

░▒░▒░▒░▒░▓░▒░▒░▒░▒░▓░▒░▒░▒░▒░▓░▒░▒░▒░▒░▓░▒░▒░▒░▒░▓░▒░▒░▒░▒░▓░▒░▒░▒░▒░▓░▒░▒░▒░▒░▓░▒░▒░▒░▒░▓░▒░▒░▒░▒░▓░▒░▒░▒░▒░▓░▒░▒░▒░▒░▓░▒░▒░▒░▒░▓░▒░▒░▒░▒░▓
In things like twitter—the length of sentence in words is important—it's  often very hard to judge how long a sentence should be beforehand.

How to use this section

This section is designed to be used in edit mode—and this is not unreasonable, since it’s expected that the premade tweets are to be put into articles here. However if you wish to use things like MS Word, then you can copy the graphic (which is 140 characters long) and use a mono-spaced font that will allow the displayed graphic to match the width of what you type. Selected eamples of mono-spaced fonts are: courier new, consolas, lucida console, and lucida sans typewriter.

Also if you like producing newspaper and magazine adverts for example, thin this stuff could also be useful to you. But always check out the advert looks in the newspaper, as it may not end up formatted in the way you expect.

The reason the font is mono-spaced in WordPress, is that they HTML keyword<pre> and </pre> is used, and that produced mono-spaced fonts. “Pre” means preformatted text, and to achieve this mono-spaced text, the only choice WordPress has, unless it can match the font of the original text as well, is to use mono-spaced text. In this case, this is a perfect situation that can be used to create sentences of 140 characters or less in length.

Something interesting about the Greek alphabet: σ, and ς are both symbols for sigma. The capitol for sigma is Σ (known as the sum of in maths).

Scientists, engineers, and mathematicians use Greek symbols, but they may not know that sigma has two lower case representations. This is because Greek letters are used in equations and those equations are exactly defined, and so the Greek letter in general is just a part of that equation.  However if a scientists, engineers, or mathematician wants to create new equations that need additional symbols, then perhaps a better understanding of the Greek alphabet might be required.

Please note: ASCII codes and extensions may not be compatible with other versions of the same thing. Because older computers also used two display modes (text and graphic) these codes might vary in meaning between the display modes as well. The early stages of the PC were more dependent on manufacturers of devices, that in turn had quite a lot of influence on how software operated–windows tried to remove this problem by putting a division between programmers and the hardware manufacturers, however windows became quite powerful and also ended up being an influence on programmers (a result that programmers might not have expected).
