Hello,

This is my solution,

http://tvm.manojky.net/csv/TernaryWithCharC.htm

Refer to remark columns for information,
I have tried to include
1). Devnagri (From -364 to -109)
2). GREEK Symbols (From -108 to -1)
3). Ascii Chars (From 0 to 255)
4). CYRILLIC (From 256 to 362)
5). Filler Values

Basically the Symbols are taken from UNICODE.

I don't have the time to complete a solution, but I have some ideas that I'll give away as a free draft for anyone who wants them. What I basically want to do is take advantage of the symmetry of balanced numerals and the symmetry of many character sets.

For an example, you could have upper case letters in the negative space, and lower case letters in the uppercase space, so that if n is say 'c', then -n is 'C', and so forth. It's a lot of work to build a solution like this, since you can't just cut and paste from the UNICODE table, but the end result I think would be really beautiful.

Well, in your case you can use ForeFox with a plugin that saves whole web-page into a single graphics file.

No, only graphics files allowed.

HTML does not guerantees that you see exactly what author did. I mean that some symbols may not be shown in certain culture settings (fonts, etc).
