This class can be used to convert text to show characters upside down.

It takes a text string and converts its characters to HTML entities that represent Unicode characters that will appear as if the text was rotated 180 degrees.

Unicode includes many character sets that can be used to write text in many idioms.

Some character sets have letters that look like letters of other character sets after rotated 180 degrees.

This class takes advantage of that fact to convert text strings in such way that it looks like the text was rotated 180 degrees.
