Excellent JS based English to LEET translator

by Ajit Gaddam on January 11, 2007

     Leet is a phrase often used on the Internet, some being online games, message boards, and chat rooms. It comes from the word “elite”, meaning “above everyone else”. It’s most commonly written as “1337″ or “l33t”. It can also be written differently, the numbers 1, 3 and 7 standing for L, E and T respectively.

Numbers for letters
One of the qualities of leet speak is using numbers to replace letters. Many words have numbers leet speak.
* 1 — L, I (I is more often shown as |, and sometimes as ][)
* 2 — Z (not in common usage)
* 3 — E
* 4 — A
* 5 — S
* 6 — G (not in common usage)
* 7 — T (can also be L)
* 8 — B
* 9 — G
* 0 — O (Occasionally represented by “()”)
